Science Week 2014

September 2014 saw our second very successful Science week at school , thanks in part to the Institute of Physics who kindly donated £500 towards the resources in making this great week come together. 

Science Week this year took place the week beginning 25th September. It started with a big bang when Mr Rob Young and colleagues from Millbrook Academy in Brockworth paid us a visit on Monday and demonstrated a few

amazing experiments which even set the fire alarm off!!

On Tuesday we had two ladies from Stem Works come in with the largest amount of K’nex. The children were placed in pairs and set the task to build a sturdy structure that had defences like a drawbridge, or other moving parts.

On Wednesday the whole School paid a visit to the @Bristol Museum which was a fab day. The children each had a show to go to and then were allowed to explore and go on all the activity stations they wanted to.

Sadly, on Thursday Lightning Bolts and Phoenixes were supposed to pay a visit to the Owl Sanctuary but it had to be postponed.

On Friday Rainbows and Jelly Beans visited the City Farm in Gloucester and had a super time learning and feeling about a number of animals.

For the rest of the time the children undertook a variety of scientific investigations for understanding how coloured felt-tip pens are made up of lots of different colours, different forces to making a variety of musical instruments and looking at what sounds they make.
