Science Week 2015


Science Week took place from June 15th to June 19th and was a huge success. To get the week off to an amazing start, the Mad Science Team performed experiments for the whole school and in each classroom. This inspired classes to carry out their own experiments using and applying their scientific skills. Throughout the week specialist visitors brought exotic animals in to meet the children.  

Read on, and have a look at the photos and video to see what an exciting time the children (and adults) had during Science Week.

 

The Mad Science Team

On Monday some of the children learnt how to make slime, others found out about sound or fire, some classes looked at the properties of dry ice and one class even set off their own rocket!

 

Come Fly With Me!

On Wednesday we had 5 owls come to visit our school. Erika, the owl specialist, talked to the children about how these birds are adapted to their habitat and the owls even performed a flying display for the whole school.

One of the owls decided to be naughty and wouldn’t come down from the beam. Was it Whisper, Oscar or Tango?

 

 

Handling Exotic Animals

On Friday morning a range of exotic animals came to visit. These included an African snail, a millipede, a tarantula, a giant cockroach and a snake.

The children learnt many interesting facts about each animal and were very brave when holding some of them in their hands.

 

The Spaghetti and Marshmallow Challenge

This was the final event of the week for KS2. The children were faced with the challenge of building the tallest tower using only spaghetti and marshmallows.      The children had a great time building their structures and the winning group’s tower measured an amazing 93 centimetres!
