British Science Week
We have enjoyed celebrating British Science week at school, with a trip to the Life Centre at Newcastle where we enjoyed investigating in the creative zone, attending an animal show, visiting the planetarium and Key Stage Two also participated in a Light workshop. In school, we have been planting seeds and predicting how they will grow and we have been finding out about forces. On Monday the Life Centre organised for children in Key Stage Two to have an online chat with a scientist.
We also launched our CREST science award which will run for the next 12 months. CREST is the British Science Association’s scheme for STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) project work that inspires young people to think and behave like scientists and engineers. It is a nationally recognised scheme for student-led project work in the STEM subjects. The children will need to complete 8 challenges in order to gain their award. These will take place in school but can also be completed at home.
