British Science Week

This week we have had a fantastic time taking part in British Science Week.  We started this exciting extended curriculum opportunity with a special assembly during which we found out what makes a super scientist. 

We then spent time in the afternoon designing a poster around the theme of ‘Time’ for a national poster competition (look out for details about the chosen finalists next week!) On Tuesday, we all enjoyed our Science Federation afternoon where each of our classes worked with a class from the juniors on a creative science activity: Year R worked with Year 5 to explore how the seasons change nature over time; the Year 1 classes worked with Year 4 to explore “Active Adaptations” by creating camouflaged clay moths and Year 2 went over to the Junior School to discover more about “Disappearing Dinos” by orderline a timeline.

During the rest of the week, the children explored a variety of activities around the theme of time.  We also wrote letters to our future selves to include in a school time capsule. 

It has been a truly super Science Week and we hope it has inspired

some scientists of the future!
