Join the Sharks and Stingrays on their learning journey

Comments Off on THE AIR SHOW !


The whole school had a real treat on Monday, when , as part of our Science Themed Fortnight, we welcomed John Coad, a very experienced and wonderful Scientist from ‘Key Stage Solutions’ to lead an hour’s enthralling education and entertainment on the subject of AIR.

Through a range of demonstrations and plenty of audience participation, the children were able to experience the amazing pressure that air exerts and empathise with the great scientists who extended our knowledge of the atmosphere. They learned all about what is in the air around us, the gases it is made up of , all about the new sport of balloon surfing and how to be vacuum packed!

After a big-bang finale, parents watch out! There are now plenty of new experiments that your children will be able to tell you about and very possibly try at home!
