Meet The New
For our Entry Point we visited Professor Spark’s laboratory where we explored and discovered lots of new and fascinating facts about the brain. Did you know we have billions of neurons in our brain, which send messages and help us to learn?
In Year 1 we had great fun dressing up as scientists and got very messy dissecting jelly brains to find the neurons within. Our goggles and lab coats came in very handy when we were mixing different coloured potions together to create new and wonderful concoctions. We really felt like scientists as we started our investigations into the brain.
Year 2 took a closer look at the different parts of the brain, piecing them together bit by bit; just like a jigsaw puzzle. Yes that’s right, our brains are made up of different parts, each with their own name and important jobs to do. We then created our own cauliflower brains by painting each part a different colour to represent each special part of the brain. It was brain-tastic!
We really enjoyed our entry point! It was a great introduction into our Unit all about the brain and how we learn. We can’t wait to hear more from Professor Spark and to find out what is install for us next.
