Maths and Science at The Farnborough Academy

Following a warm welcome by Mr Chaloner, we quickly made our way to the Farnborough Science labs. We had the opportunity to light Bunsen burners and change the flames. In our second session, we identified metals using the colour of the flames. We now know what gives fireworks their colours.

In the afternoon, we explored the difference between an expression and an equation in mathematics. In the second lesson, we completed a maths relay. In small groups we had to complete challenge cards. We beat the current record and achieved 11 correct answers!

Well done to the Year 5 children for their excellent behaviour whilst at Farnborough and for coping so well despite the high temperatures.
