British Science Week

                             British Science Week 2019

The theme for 2019 British Science Week is 'journeys', encouraging the children to think about the different scientific journeys that happen every day and how they can discover science through their own lives and experiences. It is also a chance for the children to consider how journeys can help us experience more of the world around us.

 

Each year group has planned experiments, trips and investigations on this theme using the British Science Week resource packs. Themes such as space exploration, the environment and animal & plant life will be explored during the week.  On Monday 18th March we will hold a special ‘Star Scientist’ assembly when we will recognise children who excelled during science week.

 

To coincide with British Science Week, this term's Share a Story will again focus on Women in Science. We aim to continue to raise the profile of significant female scientists that were not included in the traditional text books and encyclopedias: the so called ‘hidden figures’. We will present their life journeys as stories of resilience, belief in oneself and empowerment: stories that every child, boy or girl, should hear. Teachers will be introducing the children to scientists such as Jane Goodall, Grace Hopper, Rachel Carson, Katherine Johnson, Rosalind Franklin, Ada Lovelace and many more. We have some wonderful books to share with the children.

British Science Week 2018

During the week beginning the 12th March we celebrated British Science Week. We launched the week with a special assembly with Mr Wood and Sally Fisher (our science leader) demonstrating some amazing science.

Teachers planned a full week of activities linked to the theme: exploration and discovery”. Here is a selection of just some of the activities they planned:

Mummifying tomatoes

Astro nappy

Poo from the past

Polar explorer food

Escape from the ice

The Silly Science Roadshow visited the school on Thursday 15th March (for children from reception to year 6). We also welcomed visiting female scientists into the school, amongst them a computer scientist, a sports scientist, a bio chemist and a paramedic.

To coincide with science week, this term's Share a Story event focused on Women in Science. There are many famous scientists that we may be aware of: Ada Lovelace, Marie Curie and possibly Rachel Carson. But what about the women who are not in the text books and encyclopaedias: the so called ‘hidden figures’? It’s time to tell their story.

Their story is one of resilience, belief in oneself and empowerment. Stories that every child, boy or girl, should hear.
