Year 5 celebrate ‘Science Week’

On Tuesday the 12th of March, all of the year 5 children had the opportunity to go to Sirius to take part in a Science Day where we carried out experiments in Chemistry, Biology and Physics!

In Chemistry we looked at the process of chromatography and used special paper, different coloured pens and water to see how many different colours make up another colour.

In physics, we made paper aeroplanes and used a machine to make them fly – Declan from our school beat everyone as his plane flew a MASSIVE 9.8m and won a fantastic prize!

In biology we looked at a sheep’s respiratory system! The teacher dissected parts of its lungs and heart and we were able to hold and look at them! It was amazing to see what a lung looked like!
