Science Day 4th and 5th July 2018

British Science Week, run by the British Science Association, is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.  Due to an extremely busy Spring term, we made the decision to move our celebrations of British Science Week (9-18thMarch 2018) into the Summer term.

This year’s activities were themed around ‘exploration and discovery’.  They aimed to give the children an easy, hands-on way to get involved in science for the day.  Activities included making bubbles, fizzy colours, astronaut skills, capture-mark-recapture experiments, ice escape and so much more!

From the children…

“It was the best day ever!”

“I wish every lesson was like that.”

“I wonder if I’ll discover something that changes the world one day.”

“I did the experiment at home to show my brother.”

From the teachers…

“It was amazing to see every single child getting involved.”

“Some of the ideas the children came up with even got me thinking!”

“It got everyone talking, even those you’d least expect.  The children loved it.”
