On Thursday, Year 5’s science lessons enabled the children to show how well they can design, carry out and record an experiment independently of their teachers. Everyone knew the importance of looking back and thinking about all of their learning so far in Year 5 so that they could bring together different ideas. The children were tasked with identifying which type of tape was the stickiest – Sellotape, masking tape or duct tape. The exercise also allowed the children to show how well they can organise their learning together as part of a team of 3 or 4. The teachers were really impressed with the different scientific approaches taken by the children in tackling the same experiment and the time and care they put into recording and analysing their results.
