We had a fantastic time celebrating British Science Week, so much so, we celebrated over two weeks, in order to fit in all of the exciting things we had planned. Children from Year 1 to Year 6 spent an afternoon visiting a Science Fair, courtesy of John Moores Universiy in our very own Science Lab. During which, the children were able to watch practical demonstrations and take part in experiments. We were also visited by our friends at Zoolab. They brought along a whole host of interesting animals for us to meet and learn about. The children were able to learn about life cycles, habitats and food chains during their workshops, as well as have a stroke and a hold of the animals (if they were brave enough!) Some of our older children went on a visit to one of the local high schools to experience KS3 Science. We were so impressed with how sensibly they handled their Science equipment. A selection of Science ambassadors also visited a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) fair at Litherland High School. The children took part in the judging of other schools Science projects and gathered some ideas for our own contribution to next years fair. It really was a two week celebration of Science in it's many different forms. We can't wait for British Science Week 2020 already!
Following the government's directive school is currently only open to a limited number of children. Our nursery and 2 year old provision remain open as usual. For Reception to Year 6, we are only open to the children of critical workers (if needed) and vulnerable children.
