Science Week began on Monday 13th March with a Lego Workshop for the children across school. This gave the children the opportunity to be both creative and scientific as they built their own properties with working lights and moving parts. This meant that children had to wire up circuits accurately as well as decide how and what would be turned on and off.
The children had an informative and exciting practical Science assembly delivered by Fizz Pop Science. They will also be running an after-school club in the summer term.
On Thursday, the children in Key Stage 2 went to the Big Bang Science Fair at the NEC to see workshops and stalls full of different science activities. This was a very popular event and very busy. Our children coped extremely well in this environment and experienced a whole range of ideas which were science related.
Additionally, in school and across the week there was a greater focus on connecting science content to other areas of the curriculum. Some of the activities were also carried out amongst the pyramid primary schools so that the children's work can be shared and moderated together by the Science leaders.
A busy but enjoyable week has been had by all.
