Year 4 Science – Mars

Posted: 26th March 2021

Our intrepid scientists continue to have their curiosity sparked about space and the Perseverance rover with investigations about Mars this week. The pupils carried out an experiment to find out what affects the size of craters made by meteorites on Mars, looking at the size and mass of the ‘meteorites’ as well as the height they drop from. 

This was followed up by a series of experiments to discover which of three samples was a soil sample from Mars sent to us by NASA and the European Space Agency (courtesy of Mrs Swain, our science technician)! 

All this talk about Mars has ignited wonder in a number of pupils with Grace A showing us her lego version of a Mars rover and the inside of a spacecraft and Sumedh K and Jack R showing their spacecraft designs
