Scitech bought an amazing show about chemistry to our Early Years Department. The students watched ‘science in the kitchen’ with much excitement. They learnt about QPE, which are the key skills for early scientists. QPE stands for Questioning, Predicting and Experimenting. The students then observed and explained the changes they witnessed.
Following the show, each class was able to take part in their own experiments. During these experiments, the students looked for changes to the ingredients. They used their language skills to describe the changes and they made predictions about what they thought would happen.
It was a fun and rather messy experience, but most importantly, the students learnt so much about everyday science.
