Last week was British Science Week 2019 and although the official theme was ‘Journeys’, we decided on the theme ‘Science is Everywhere!’ to help our children understand how much science affects their everyday lives.
We had a very busy week with all sorts of things packed in, like assemblies from special guests from Affinity Water and parents who used to work in Forensics, child-led science investigations in class, opportunities to research famous scientists and, most spectacularly, science workshops where we got to make our own slime to take home!
In addition to the activities we did at school, many of us also completed some science challenges at home! The most popular activity was arranging a circle of skittles (or similar sweets) on a plate, pouring water on them and seeing what happened to the colours. We were blown away by how many parents sent in photos of their children having a go at the challenges at home so a huge thank you for your support.
