Science at home
Below are some simple science experiments that you can try out at home together. Each one includes an explanation of the science behind the experiment which allows you to explain to your child what is happening. Remember to ask lots of questions; What is happening? What can you see? Do you know why this is happening?
Have fun together!
Some more science experiments!
For those families either at home already or for those who enjoy having fun with science at home... below are some more experiments that you could share with your children. There are also some prompt cards/questions that you could use to encourage your children to think scientifically whilst enjoying the experiments! More importantly, spend time together and enjoy learning together!
Family Science Evening
It was fantastic to see so many of our families attend Science Evening recently. We really were overwhelmed with the response we had on the night and we hope to run similar events in the future. It was a great atmosphere in school and we all thoroughly enjoyed working with you and your children. It would not have been possible without the help from Miss Dickenson, Miss Copley and Mr Hale from FCC Science Department so a huge thank you must go to them. Miss Beale also played a key role in the organisation of the evening so a huge thank you must also go to her! And of course not forgetting a HUGE thank you to Mrs Forbes for the idea, support, organisation and for making it all come together.
As requested, the instructions for the experiments are below so you can continue to enjoy these at home with your children:
