New Swannington Science Fair 2019

These are just a few of the amazing entries we had in our first ever science fair. Well done to everyone that took part.

Year 4 - Teeth

We investigated the function of different teeth using kitchen utensils and different types of food. 

Year 4 - Electricity

Using a "UFO ball" toy we explored what makes circuits work and what doesn't.

Year 6 - Nature's Library

Year 6 have been doing lots of work on how plants and animals are classified. We produced posters on the 5 different kingdoms; planned a garden centre based on plant's properties and then finished the unit by creating our own creature or plant that matched specific criteria.

Year 1 - Exploring our Senses

Year 4 have been looking at how we know gases are there by taking part in a range of investigations.

Year 1 find out about Autumn

The children in Year 1 have been observing change across the seasons. They found out about what happens to living things like plants and animals, what happens to the weather and what happens to people. They used their findings to create some great artwork.
