Prep Science Week

Mrs Barton, Head of Prep Science, writes:

'Terrific Trees' was the theme of the Prep School Science Week. We were very busy!

On the Monday all of the children in Reception through to Year 3 visited Bedgebury Pinetum to learn about the different forest habitats and the things that live there. Years 4 to 6 visited Bedgebury on Tuesday and enjoyed a 'Forests for the Future' workshop. Of course, both groups found time to enjoy the fabulous playground too!

Other activities included:

­čî│capillary action experiments

­čî│getting to know the trees at Radnor: 'Adopt a Tree'

­čî│designing posters to share lots of fascinating tree facts

­čî│bendy branch experiments to test for sap levels

­čî│transpiration quiz

­čî│Tree Taboo games

­čî▒ .... and planting our own trees in the East Field that each class has grown from seed since October.
