Science week!

This year, the theme for science week was TIME. 

Year 2 chose to focus on the seasons. We looked for signs of spring and what spring means to us. Lots of us thought about the weather improving and new life. We discussed that lots of animals are born in the spring and they need shelter. After looking at different birds nests, we tried to make our own! They had to be secure, comfy and protect the baby birds. 


On Friday afternoon, we were lucky enough to have a talk with a professor from a Leicester University. He talked to us about how medicines impact the cells in our body and that we have to use a microscope to see the cells. We enjoyed taking part in a quiz. He showed us objects under a microscope and we had to guess what they were.
