Science Week 2024

For Science Week 2024 our theme was ‘time’. Among other activities this week (an engineering competition and investigating scientist roles in the work place) Year 4 made their own water clocks. The activity was designed to support the application of children’s working scientifically skills consequently, the task was very open-ended. The children we given the challenge to make the water clock time exactly one minute.

Some children chose to adapt their clock by using a different amount of water, or changing the size of the holes in the bottle, alongside other ideas. The children use4d excellent investigative skills and enjoyed exploring all options. Many of them managed to achieve the challenge, using resilience and critical thinking!! Lots of house points all round!
