Year 1 visited by Mr. Marchant a Sports scientist during science week
Both Cedar and Ash class really enjoyed finding out about the job Mr.Marchant does. We learnt that scientists start with a question and then seek to answer it by gathering data. The first question asked was :
“If we practice something will we get better at it?”
All the children worked with a partner using special resources to test reaction speeds when dropping a ruler. We had some naturally speedy catchers and others who definitely improved after each go.
