British Science Week 2018
Musbury celebrated an exciting science week this year with the theme ‘Exploration and Discovery’ on the 5th and 6th of March.
After learning about the UK’s effort to beat the land-speed record in a rocket powered car, the children made their own balloon powered cars which they worked hard to modify and test to go the furthest. Well done in particular to Kiera’s group and Alex’s group who managed to get their cars to travel over 3 metres! A video of one of our experiments can be seen here http://www.musbury-primary.devon.sch.uk/gallery/
Class 1 became detectives to solve the case of the Missing Bear by using all of their senses to find the evidence to match their clues. Well done to all the children, who discovered that the missing bear was in fact, Daniel!
On the second day, the children were challenged to make bridges from newspaper, strong enough to hold a tin of tomatoes. Although all the bridges had different designs, all the bridges were successful and the children showed excellent team work throughout.
It was lovely to see the children enjoying the mini experiments in their Science Fair, colour mixing with milk and food colouring, and making rain clouds with shaving foam. Thank you to all the parents who were able to come.
