This week year five visited the Winchester Science Centre to experience the hands-on science activities. The children had an amazing time trying out all of the interactive displays that taught them all about various forces, conductivity and patterns. It included moving a metal ball-bearing using brain activity!
The little big room proved to be very popular, it provided a different perspective on life.
The year group also got to break lights, not literally, but with special glasses which showed them how white light was made up of the various colours of the rainbow. They took part in a workshop which helped them to solve the problem of laser beam projection in outerspace and how NASA could reflect sunlight to protect a satellite.
Over all it was a great day and the children represented Winton Primary perfectly as well as learning a lot about science!
