Mini-beasts – Science

We caught mini-beasts while pond dipping. We then looked at these creatures under a microscope to find out: how many legs they had, what their body structure was like and to look at how they moved through the water.

Eating insects

While we were at Harper Adams we found out about how we can use insects to get protein in our diet.

Harper Adams – Where does our milk come from?

Leah is using the ‘Milking Cow’ at Harper Adams to find out what it would be like to milk a cow.

Visit to Battlefield Shrewsbury

We visited Battlefield in Shrewsbury today. This is where it is believed King Henry IV fought for his crown against Henry Percy.

We walked around the site of the battle.

Testing soil

Today students from Harper Adams came in and helped us with our Science work on testing the ph of soil types. We collected soil from around the school and from Morrells Wood Farm and used soil specifically used to plant seeds and seedlings.

We used litmus paper to test whether a soil was acidic or alkaline. We also used an electronic tester.
