Physics Day

The Science department at Kent College welcomed the Year 5 students from Capel Primary School for a Physics workshop.

Aims

The aim of the project was to give external primary school children the opportunity to use Kent College's facilites and enhance their curriculum using resources that would not be available in their own school. 

Background

The opportunity was identified by the Heads from both schools. 

This was the second session between the two schools.

Resources

Kent College's Science department travelled to Capel Primary School to deliver a session on electricity. 

 

Impact

The students were given the opportunity to make electronic quiz boards using questions that they had previously researched. The quiz boards were designed so that they would light up if the operator got the correct answer. Once the boards had been constructed, both pupils and teachers were put to the test on topics such as populations of countries, languages and flags.

It was a very enjoyable experience all round. 

Pupil Involvement

Year 5 boys and girls. 

Frequency

This collaboration will continue next year with the aim of running project based activities.
