The overall theme for Science Week this year was ‘healthy lifestyles’. Throughout the week the children had the opportunity to take part in a range of activities to promote healthy living.
We started Science week this year on Friday 11th March. We were very lucky to have a scientist in school all day who showed the whole school some very spooky science and then spent some time in each class carrying out a range of experiments using chemistry and physics to create glowing creatures, spooky circuits, witch’s brew and more.
On the morning of Tuesday 15th March we were visited by St Johns ambulance who spent some time in KS1 and KS2 throughout the morning demonstrating basic first aid.
On the afternoon of Tuesday 15th March we welcomed Paralympic Fencer, Jemma Collins into school. Each class spent 30 minutes with Jemma taking part in various activities in the hall, which they were sponsored to complete. We ended the day with a whole school assembly, this was a great opportunity for the children to ask Jemma questions.
On the morning of Wednesday 16th March Year 5 and 6 visited Beamish Museum to take part in a workshop on digestion.
