Science Week Investigations

During Walk in Wednesday, we investigated the stroop effect with our family members and class friends. We tested our reaction times when trying to say the colour that the word is written in and not the actual word. We learnt that it was harder to name the colours because the meaning of the word is not the same as its colour. We needed more thinking time which slowed down our response times. We demonstrated perseverance as we were keen to keep trying and beat our own times.

Did you manage to beat your time at home?

Later that day, we were fortunate enough to have a visit from Dr Baross, a sport and exercise lecturer at the University of Northampton. We enjoyed our practical workshop where we learnt about the cardiovascular system. First, we attached the blood pressure monitors to our fingers to measure our heart rates at rest. Then, we exercised to test how our hearts react when we become more physically active. After we had finished our exercise, we tested our heart rates again and spoke about why our heart rate had increased.

Reading

Please continue to read with your child on a regular basis. The reading record should be completed as often as possible and will be checked when they read with an adult at school. Children should read school books and anything else that they enjoy! The children will have the opportunity to visit the school library once a week too. Please make sure your child’s library book is back in school the following week so that they can return it and get a new one.
