Perform Drama Group treat us to 3 Science Drama Workshops

Natural World

We are going on an adventure, investigating and exploring the environment (conditions and surroundings in which people, animals or plants live). Over to the fields through the forest what do we see?

Light and Sound

In our Light and Sound Workshop we thought about light sources; the sun, stars and fire as well as electric lights, torches etc. Some animals have their own light sources for example fireflies. We learnt that light travels in beams and bounces off things then travels into our eyes so that we can see images. We also learnt that sounds have pitch and volume and experimented with our voices. Sound vibrations run through our ears to the brain. To understnad this journey we did an ear assult course.

There are 4 parts to our eyes. We split into groups and used drama to demonstrate what they are and how they work.

'Rocking Retinas' - We're the size of your thumbnail and are filled with rods and cones. Our rods identify shapes and our cones identify colour. But when we send the pictures to the brain, we send them upside down. So the brain has to do a bit of work to turn them the right way round.

'Perfect Pupils' - We're the black bit in the middle of the eye. We control the amount of light that enters into the eye.

'Incredible Iris' - We are a muscle. We are the coloured circle of the eye

'Cool Corneas' - We do two things. We help to shield the rest of the eye from germs and dust. We are like a window that controls and focuses the light that goes into the eye.

Food and Health

In this workshop we helped Doctor Fitlock write a book called 'Discover Your Body'. Did you know that your body has 600 muscles! Muscles are like elastic they stretch and then return to their original shape. We use our muscles for every move we make even when eating and drinking. Some importants parts of the body include the brain, heart and lungs. We need to take care of our amazing bodies by eating healthy food, drinking water, resting and getting plenty of exercise. The five senses; sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch were discussed and then we used drama to explore and learn more about our bodies.
