A Visit from Chartwells

As part of our ‘Animal, Vegetable, Mineral?’ Topic, this week we had our caterers, Chartwells in to talk about trying things at least 50 times so our taste buds recognise the taste which will then tell our brain if we like / dislike that particular food item and how the smell of different foods bring back memories we have of that particular smell. We sprayed some vinegar around the room which resulted in the pupils not particularly liking the smell but loving the taste of chips. We made promises that a new food item will be tried before we return for another workshop.

Animal, Vegetable, Mineral?

As part of the school enquiry ‘Animal, Vegetable, Mineral?’ children have been learning about plant reproduction.  They dissected plants and completed drama activities to replicate pollination.

Being Scientists

Wheal Fortune have enjoyed being scientists as part of our curriculum enquiry ‘Mankind?’ Here they are measuring foot flexibility for an investigation focusing on adaptations.
