Mad Science!

This morning at Northern, every child watched a mad scientist at work. The hall came alive with experiments! The theme of the assembly was 'Sound' and the children learnt all about what sound is, how sound travels and how sound can be amplified or changed. The children were immersed in scientific vocabulary such as prediction, hypothesis, vibrations, resound, waves, air and many more. Some children were lucky enough to be chosen as helpers and did a great job. We also made a chicken, tiger and a dinosaur using an empty yoghurt pot, string and some water!?! Finally we experienced fire and how it can be used to make sound. 
An excellent time was had by all and Tom (our Mad Scientist) was impressed with the answers the children gave to his questions. A letter regarding the after school club will go home this week.
