British Science week 2020

It was British Science week this year from the 6th - 15th March.  This year

we decided to try something different! We had a Science fair.  It was held after school during science week.  The children were invited to come and bring along an adult.  There were seven stations with different fun science activities for the children to take part in including Elephant tooth paste and BFG dream jars.  It was really well attended and the children had lots of fun.  Next year we plan to extend it.


 Each year, we have had a focus on science throughout the week with the children learning about the topic for that year, this year being Our Diverse Planet .  Each year group took one of the ideas from the Science week booklet and at the end of the week we had a show and tell assembly where each class is able to show of what they have learnt that week. We discussed why we liked Science and why it is so much fun.
