A Week of Science for Junior Girls

Monday, 21 May 2012

Pupils at Hesketh House enjoyed a full week dedicated to Science, with a variety of activities taking place both in the classroom and outdoors.

During the week, each year group had the chance to go on a field trip relating to their Science studies. Year 3 became junior geologists at the Bolton Museum, looking at Rocks and Soils, while Year 4 carried out experiments at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester to enhance their studies on Forces and Friction. Year 5 and Year 6 visited Seven Acres Woodland Trust site in Bolton to participate in lots of outdoor activities relating to their topics of Lifecycles (Y5) and Interdependence and Adaptations (Y6).

Year 3 pupil Manahil Masood said: "We found out the names of some rocks such as sandstone, limestone, marble, granite, pumice-stone, coal and slate. We played games and learnt how to put rocks into one of three groups: igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. Today I learnt that rocks are all very different and that any rock can be put into one of these three groups. I can identify a rock by its description and I can describe its properties. I loved the trip to the museum and I hope that we can go there again."
