Our Visit to Catalyst Science Discovery Centre

We had a great time working as scientists for the day.

We learnt all about the properties of plastic and made our own keyrings by heating and moulding the plastic.

We spent time in the science lab investigating the effects of mixing materials together.

Contour Models

As Geographers we have studied contour lines on maps and looked at what this tells us about the land.
