15.03.19 Red Nose Day

This week at Sandy Hill we have had Science week. We have been looking at and learning about famous scientists . Year 1 looked at Thomas Edison and Year 2 looked at Graham Bell. We wrote a fact file about them including what invention they were famous for and how it has developed. The children watched the lunar landing which was 50 years ago. They had an amazing opportunity of going into the planetarium, where they learnt about the stars, the earth and moon. We have planned an experiment that we will carry out this week using different materials to help an astronaut land back to earth. The children are also going to “Astronaut camp”, where they will carry out circuits of activities to see if they are worthy of their space passport.
