‘Time’ to celebrate Science Week 2024!

Children had an amazing time last week, taking part in lots of learning activities linked to this year’s theme of time. ⏱

FS2 learnt all about the life cycle of a caterpillar and the process of metamorphosis; they are currently growing their own butterflies and have made butterfly feeders & wildflower seed balls to help them in their natural habitats. KS1 learnt all about pendulums; how they are used in real life and even made their own! 🐛🦋

LKS2 learnt about plastic pollution and the harmful impact on our planet – the time it takes for decomposition of plastic to occur and how environmentally friendly bioplastic can be made. Children were invited to take part in the national ‘Big Plastic Count’ to help convince UK ministers to lead the way at the global talks that could finally phase out plastic pollution for good. 🌎♻

UKS2 learnt about their amazing brains and how they develop over time; including exploring neurons and how the number of connections in our brains grows based on our experiences. 🧠

Everyone in school loved the Steamworks workshops that happened mid-week – exploring gravity/air pressure tricks, sound vibrations, chemical reactions and robotics. It really was an amazing week! ⚙🧪

There’s still time to enter the science poster competition – entries must be received by Monday 25th March! Winners will receive a certificate and prize.
