States of Matter is the theme for science this term!
KS3 will be focussing on Scientific Enquiry; asking questions, carrying out investigations and recording evidence.
In Autumn term KS3 studied Evolution , Ash class looked at the origins of all living things. Some groups have looked at fossils and found out that they are a record of events from long ago on our planet. Ash class has also studied 'Inheritance' and observed how animals and humans inherit characteristics from their parents. Some students made 'super animals' which were uniquely adapted to their environment. We have an exciting trip planned this term to look at Dinosaurs at the Thinktank in Birmingham.
Ash enjoyed a really interesting visit from a Geologist! They were super attentive and Dr Dale even remarked on how well they answered questions about rocks and rock types.
