Term 4, Week 4

Dear Year 5 and 6 Parent/Carers,

As you know this Year 5 and 6 have been taking part in BBC’s Terrific Scientific Science investigations. So far children have taken part in a taste test and investigated properties of water. Our third investigation is planned around the topic of Earth, Space and time. The children will investigate whether the clock changes affects reaction times and sleep pattern in children. Children as part of this will need to complete sleep diaries and will also be carrying out reaction time tests before and after the clocks change in school. The BBC has partnered with University of Oxford for this investigation. Please find more information below.

We look forward to another exciting real life science investigation and thank you for your continued support.

Mr Fenton and Miss Wild​
