Year 8S Science Teaching
After their scholarship exams, boys in 8S had the chance to become science teachers for the afternoon and spent several weeks carefully planning lessons to deliver to pre-prep.
The boys designed demonstrations, practical activities and presentations for their lessons, along with worksheets and the obligatory risk assessment. Dan and Tolly did a wonderful lesson for Reception on chemical reactions, complete with a demonstration of elephants’ toothpaste. Year 1 enjoyed Finn and Isaac’s lesson on states of matter and density. Playing with oobleck was a particular highlight! Cooper, Josh and Gary ran a fantastic session on space with Year 2 and the boys put their hand-eye coordination to the test, trying out various robotic rover arms, before watching the Mento and Coca Cola geyser tube rocket launch!
