Jayden - KS1
'I loved learning about the moon and planets because I never knew they existed and that there are different sizes and colours.'
 
William - KS1
'I loved the minibeast hunt because my second favourite animal is a woodlouse and I learnt all about them.'
 
Zach - KS1
'I loved learning that people who study insects are called entomologists.  I learnt that insects have 6 legs and an exoskeleton.'
 
Walter - LKS2
'I liked the project 'Predator' as I really liked learning about ferocious animals because it's fascinating to see if the predator kills its prey or if the prey can outrun the predator.'
 
Brandon - LKS2
'I liked learning about rocks that are formed from volcanoes, which are igneous rocks. I also liked doing an experiment with toy cars to see which surface had the most friction.' 
 
Amy - UKS2
'In Science you get to do some really cool things. I really enjoy the investigations, like when we investigated natural selection, and learning about how other creatures live.'
