British Science Week
Next week is British Science Week and here at school we are joining in with the fun. We are suspending our usual timetable in favour of lots of practical, hands-on science experiences. Your children will be engaging in scientific investigations and brushing up on their predicting, observing, measuring, recording, concluding and evaluating skills. We'll kick off the week by recapping what is meant by science, in our whole school assembly and unpicking what is meant by this year's theme which is 'Connections'. The children will also find out more about the Poster Competition that we are running throughout the week - a member of the British Science Association will be judging this nationally with amazing prizes - there are also awards in school too. On Tuesday, the children will gather in their Houses and teachers will be guiding them through some exciting, dramatic and somewhat messy practical sessions. They will get the chance to work together across age groups. The icing on the cake is going to be Friday's Science Fair in the hall (see below). If your child has something to enter, please bring items to the office on Friday morning and we will safely store them in the community room until 2.30pm on Friday when you child will have some time to set up. We look forward to seeing (and probably also hearing and mopping up) lots of wonderful science.
