Invent & discover

Monday, 11 March, 2013 - 09:00 to Wednesday, 20 March, 2013 - 15:00

We will be turning this whole week over to science and engineering with each class finding out about an accidental discovery and one or more scientist or engineer from the past and present. A science fair, 'experimental' assemblies and a competition for home are all planned. A day in year 4 on recycling will kick start our competition entries with the older children performing a play about recycling. The week will end with each class presenting their findings in a sharing assembly. We are all looking forward to another exciting National Science & Engineering Week.

We had a fab week. It started with Mrs. M. telling us about Newton and breaking the hall light with a rocket! Year 4 put on a great play about recycling and Year 2 got covered in fizzy pop. Fabulous!
