Science in Year 5

18th December 2019


5HH have been looking at reversible and irreversible reactions. This culminated in an unusual ‘triple lesson’ last week, during which 4 investigations were completed to see if different reactions could be reversed or not. After the investigations, they witnessed a sugar snake and saw the coloured flame and huge snake that erupted, using the heat as a catalyst. They finished the session by making vinegar rockets using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda. Despite being a 105 minute lesson all the pupils were fantastically behaved and sensible using flames and fully engaged in the topic.

We are expanding to GCSE!

Parents have told us they need a quality senior school alternative, so from September 2021, pupils already at Copthorne or joining in Year 7 will be able to stay with us to Year 11. Our first GCSE exams will take place in 2026. 

Join us at our next Virtual Open Morning or read about our expansion to find out more.
