Year 5 Science Challenge at Bradfield College

Four of our Year 5 pupils represented Elstree at the Bradfield College Prep Schools’ Science Challenge.  They were set various problems to solve for Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

For Biology, the pupils looked at maggot behaviour in light and dark conditions, in Chemistry they looked at temperature changes in reactions, and in Physics, they had to make a working speaker using cardboard and wire (Ed Sheeran never sounded so good!).

Finally, the Head of Chemistry entertained the pupils with a series of pops, bangs and whizzes!

It was a great fun afternoon for all the children involved and thank you to Bradfield College for hosting the Challenge.
