Science Week – w/c 11th March 2019
Science Week has been ‘out of this world’ and all the children have thoroughly enjoyed their exploration of space and the solar system, with a trip to the National Space Centre, a talk from an astronaut and a cosmic carousel of space science!
Mrs. Droy, who organised the week (with the support of our stellar Dormer teaching team!) said:
“It has been a brilliant Science Week, centred on the theme of ‘Journeys into Space’. This is a national event and the whole school has been fizzing and buzzing with all things scientific. A trip to the National Space Centre in Leicester was fantastic. The children had the opportunity to look around many of the galleries, completing self-guided trails as they went. They also experienced a ‘Journey through the Solar System’ in the Planetarium.
Back at school, we conducted a carousel that saw an investigation into the solar system with fruit being used to demo dimensions, a study into the best material for an astronaut’s suit and the creation of a star constellation map. The week culminated with a visit to meet “a real live astronaut” at Chipping Campden School.”
The rewards of a science and space rich primary education will stand all our young scientists in good stead in the years ahead and we are delighted to uphold the mantle of science and technology with our Gold Primary Science Quality Mark and Space Award.
