Science Day Fun!

What a fantastic day was had by all on Twyford St Mary’s Science Day on Tuesday 21st June! The children loved our amazing scientist, Ian Dunne whose passion for science had the children brimming with excitement! Ian’s funny but informative presentations ensured the children were inspired to do some fun investigating of their own! There were floating egg investigations in Ash class, exploding balloons in Oak, cars whizzing down different ramps in Beech, plant investigations in Sycamore, sound experiments and explosions in Willow and finally pulleys in Yew. The children also used Ballard’s Close to go bug collecting and to colour match with nature. Children also investigated and made thaumatropes, investigated sound vibrations, shadow formation and made structures using marshmallows as cement! One child was overheard saying, “that was the best day…EVER!” on her way out of school. I think the rest of Twyford St Mary’s children and staff would echo that!
