This week, St. Bernadette has been taking part in a wide range of activities as we have been celebrating British Science week. The purpose of this was to engage the children with this core subject, expand their scientific knowledge and of course to have fun!
The focus for the week was ‘INTERESTING INVESTIGATIONS’. In doing so, children throughout the school have taken part in various science activities and spent the week thinking about how scientists conduct experiments. We did lots of predicting, measuring, planning, observing, recording and presenting. We also worked hard trying to explain what we had seen and found out. The climax to the week was a ‘Science Assembly’, where children got to showcase (and explain) their models (47 participants). Three winners were chosen by the staff for their brilliant investigation and presentation skills. The competition was tough, so congratulations to those winners, and well done to all who participated. Science Week generated lots of excitement and stimulated curious minds!
The PPT shows a brief glimpse of some of the activities that we got up to.
