What is a scientist?
A person who studies or learns about science. They discover different things like germs and cures. They figure out what happens if things mix it may change what happens.
Scientists are someone who learns about science and they create vaccines and stuff like the Covid vaccine. They discover and help people and create experiments to educate people.
What do you like about science learning?
I like that we have fun hands-on experiments and you get to eat chocolate cookies – we were learning about renewable energy and we were looking at mining and picking out chocolate out of chocolate chip cookies to see mining breaks the earth. It is fun to discover different things – scientists use coal to make energy and electricity and use this to understand how it affects the environment.
Everything, science is fun. I like science because rocks are strange things and because you can blow things up. That you can do really fun stuff like circuits. I used to not think about rocks but now I do they’re quite amazing.
What has been your favourite part of science this year?
KS1 'I liked it when we made a rain cloud and a tornado.'
KS2 'I liked looking at the gravestones and discovering the rocks they were made from.
Looking at all the rocks and fossils in class and making the Jurassic cliffs. I also liked making circuits in electricity.
'Learning about the periodic table and atoms. The raisin experiment. Dissect and breathing into a cow’s lung, tongue and liver. Making circuit boards.'
