Pupils enjoyed lots of activities across the week under the banner of SCIENCE. We hope they enjoyed themselves pursuing different experiments and investigations- we await the results with interest! This year the theme for British Science Week was ‘Connections’
STEM LIVE WEBINAR
was designed to get the children thinking about the connections between weights, forces and measures
Children used flour/sellotape/black paper to obtain their fingerprints which were then examined under magnifying glasses. They looked for whorls, arches and loops and discovered that all fingerprints are different!
SEE & EAT VEGETABLES!
This activity introduced the children to the field to fork journey of fruit and vegetables - highlighting the key stages of growing, harvesting, shopping, preparing, cooking and eating. Children learnt about the connection between how foods grow and how they end up on their dinner plate.
For this activity, children got into groups of 3. One child washed their hands with a bar of soap, one child washed their hands with liquid soap and one child didn't wash their hands at all.
They then all rubbed their hands on pieces of white bread. The bread samples were placed in clear, sealed bags and placed in a warm, dark cupboard.
We will monitor the bags over the next few weeks to observe any changes.
