Year 5 Science and English Taster Experience

ALNSOn Wednesday 2 November, we were joined by Year 5 students for a Science and English Taster experience after school.

The session had a focus on an appreciation of nature and the environment around us alongside creating ideas for poetry.  We combined the Romantic poets’ appreciation of nature with a more scientific exploration of nature.

Autumn leaves and associated plants were studied under a microscope.  Students created images and explored language associated with their discoveries and their own appreciation of nature.  They also did some chemistry to create fireworks – an appreciation of  the stunning sights at this time of year – and then put their explorations into practice in the form of poetry.

A fun time was had by all!
