The last week of last term was the “Primary Science Week”. It was filled with high quality learning experiences. The children fully immersed themselves in the theme “connections” and found themselves exploring things that they did not know they were possible, making new discoveries each day. The wonderful range of investigations encouraged all children to apply their learning to new contexts, and real life problems, improving their scientific skills in the process. Across Primary some children had a hair-raising time while investigating static electricity. Other children, while learning about climate change, experimented with melting ice to investigate how greenhouse gases and pollution are causing the polar ice caps to melt. Investigations into tendons and muscles and how they support the movement of the hand have been undertaken, culminating in the children constructing robotic arms. They all found using the microscopes in the new Primary science lab fascinating. This was truly a fantastic week filled with amazing learning opportunities.
