SCIENCE AT WESTDENE

SCIENCE IN THE CLASSROOM: SCIENCE WEEK 2021

Our Science Week this year focused on environmental issues and exploration of the natural World. 

With daily WOW! tasks, the children explored a range of scientific concepts through experiments and investigations. Through activities like making ice-cream, creating lava lamps, exploring 'wonky fruit and veg', working on the school allotment, and designing windmills the pupils were able to get really hands on in their science work. 

A planetarium visit took over the main hall for all of our children in Year 4 and Year 5 to visit; we had fantastic reviews from the children and this experience will support their Space topic this year and next.

  All pupils were able to participate in an interactive  science exhibition based  on 'Light and Solar Energy' which led to lots of fun exploration and   questions.

 

 

Partnership with Sustrans

We also got to spend a day outdoors with the Safer Streets project and visitors from Sustrans, whereby the children explored local air quality  through the study of lichens, improved their bike skills and reclaimed the roads around the school for the day with some chalked street art.
