Year 1 visited by Mr. Marchant a Sports scientist during science week

Year 1 visited by Mr. Marchant a Sports scientist during science week
13th March 2019 Primrose Hill

Both Cedar and Ash class really enjoyed finding out about the job Mr.Marchant does. We learnt that scientists start with a question and then seek to answer it by gathering data. The first question asked was :

“If we practice something will we get better at it?”

All the children worked with a partner using special resources to test reaction speeds when dropping a ruler. We had some naturally speedy catchers and others who definitely improved after each go.

The second question was:

“Does our heart beat faster when we exercise?”

We tested this by using fit-bits. We recorded our rested heart rate, then we danced using GoNoodle and then recorded our heart rate again. They had all gone up!

Thank you Mr.Marchant what a fantastically interesting afternoon.
