Science With Year 6 Wollaton Hall

As part of our science curriculum, the children in Year 6 were invited to an event at Wollaton Hall called ‘After Dinner Nap – Food and Sleep’. The children took part in two workshops: one with a professor from the University of Nottingham based on the world’s most common bird, the chicken; the other, a tour of Wollaton Hall with its curator, looking at the many species of animals on display and learning about their sleep patterns. We learnt many fascinating facts about animals and birds of all kinds and it proved to be a highly interesting and educational experience. The museum are hoping to set up a Citizen’s Science research project into sleep as a result of this event.
