Science Trips

Year 5 Planetarium Visit


What an exciting introduction Year 5 have had to their new 'Earth and Space' Science topic! They have been lucky enough to visit the astonishing planetarium located at the World Museum. They took part in a workshop, finding out all about the different planets in our solar system and about searches for alien life!


Sadie: '1.3 million versions of Earth would fit inside the Sun!'


Harley: 'Our moon is actually a satellite but most of us thought it was a planet!'

Imagine That!


Some of our children were very lucky to be selected to attend a fantastic trip to the Imagine That! Science Discovery Centre in Wavertree.  The trip was a great way to take learning outside of the classroom and put our science investigative skills to the test when experimenting with slime, never-melting snow, volcanoes, rockets and in the water zone.  


The children had a fun day of multi-sensory activities from powering speakers by pedalling on bikes; racing the materials through the wind pipe; launching rockets by air pressure; creating shadows in the light tunnel and digging for fossils in the construction zone. The children learned so much during the day and even managed to fit in making Christmas decorations and reindeer food!
