Welcome to science!
British Science Week
Well done to everyone who entered the design a lab coat competition. The five best designs (see below) have been sent off and epraise points have been awarded. You can still watch Mrs Watson's Science Week assembly and find about the people behind the inspirational quotes on our science staircase.

Due to COVID restrictions, only one year group bubble can use the labs. Year 6 will use them in the autumn term and year 7 will use them in the spring term. All other science lessons will continue in your classrooms.
You will be covering these topics:
|Term||Year 5||Year 6||Year 7|
|Earth and Space||Light||Forces|
|Spring 2||Plants||Human body||Particles|
|Summer 1||Materials||Living things||Acids and Bases|
|Summer 2||Investigating our own questions||Investigating our own questions||Reproduction|
Whichever room you are in, you will be doing practical work and you need to be able to work safely.
1) Watch the video - how many hazards can you spot?
A hazard is something that is dangerous (e.g. a busy road)
2) Write a list of all the hazards you spotted
3) Watch the video again
4) Can you add to your list?
5) For each hazard, identify the risk.
The risk is what could happen to you (e.g. be run over)
6) What precautions could you take to reduce the risk?
A precaution is something you do to reduce the risk (e.g. cross at the traffic lights)
Health and safety nightmare!
At the moment, there is a significant risk of catching and spreading COVID-19.
What precautions do you need to take?
