This week at Phil and Jim we celebrated British Science Week. And what a week it has been! Each year group was assigned a topic and we have been observing, investigating, and experimenting all week.
We kicked off the week with an introductory assembly, where topics were revealed, questions were asked, hypothesising was done, and fun was had. There was a cola and mentos explosion followed by an oily lava lamp twist! There were also huge paper airplanes, which were used to explain how 6-step investigations are carried out.
We were incredibly fortunate and very thankful to have some parent visitors this week too. Mr Robinson came into Y5 and presented the absolutely fascinating topic of how the eye has adapted over time, and Ms Scott had all of Year 3 captivated during her presentation on adaptations of animals. Year 4 had a visit from the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology who brought in a huge gut to help explain the importance of our guts and how we fight bacteria.
There has also been incredible science work happening all throughout the school from the children – fantastically detailed diagrams, excellent investigating, and superb 6-step investigation writing too.
A huge thank you to all the teachers who have made this week possible, and a further thank you to all our visitors; the children have had an amazing week!
