Our new year 6 science leaders have enjoyed putting together this science newsletter. We hope you enjoy it!
Year 6 had a great experience when Thinkers in Education visited to run Blood Analysis workshops last week. The children had to analyse simulation blood to find out whose blood had been found at an imaginary crime scene. The method used showed us how being able to match blood types helps to solve crimes and in medical situations too.
At the Royal Institution in London, there is a wonderful children's science laboratory called the Young Scientist Centre. A group of our most talented and enthusiastic scientists from year 6 recently visited to learn about DNA. They used chemical processes and special equipment to extract the DNA from their own cheek cells. They brought home their own DNA in special necklaces. One highlight of the session was using pipettes worth £2000 each which could measure a millionth of a litre! Enjoy the photos!
