This week we are putting up letters saying “investigating in Lab_13” outside the lab door so that everybody knows that in this lab we investigate. We have fun and enjoy ourselves when we find out about science and how things work and how things are made. We got lots of people from different classes to create science artwork on the letters. Up to this point we’ve got a selection of drawings on different letters. One of the letters has been drawn on with planets, Saturn and stars. One of my favourites is the one that shows us some forces, and it’s got a magnet that can lift and blow rockets into the air. My last favourite one is the one with the snakes going around into an “S” shape. I adore these letters because when you look at them, it just makes you want to ask more questions and find out stuff.
We’ve got a caterpillar pencil case and most of the children ask questions. We write them down on a sticky note or paper and put them into the caterpillar, and after that Carole looks inside the caterpillar, and reads them. She takes the children that asked the question into the lab to help them figure out the answer. We find out that they’ve figured out the answer either when Carole brings them to assembly so that they can share it with everybody, or she puts pictures up in the corridor so everybody can see what you have been doing and finding out.
Don’t forget! We will be screening Jurassic Park! Get tickets NOW!!!!! It will be shown on Feb Monday 10th 2014 from 6pm-8pm. We are fundraising for a WONDERFUL surprise!
Another innovation is ‘Scientist Birthdays!!’ We are all going to celebrate the birthdays of Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Rosalind Franklin, Emmy Noether and Charles Darwin +LAB_13!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
