Headteachers Blog – Science Week

We celebrated an awesome science week with the theme’ ‘Journeys’ from Monday 18th March – Friday 22nd March. It was a captivating week filled with a mesmerising demonstration assembly (led by Mrs Anderson from, our sister school, Stanborough Secondary School), there were lots of gripping hands-on activities and projects in class such as: creating a ‘Tracks and Tunnels game’, making paper aeroplanes during the ‘Make it Fly’ activity to exploring ‘Plastic – Journey to the ocean’ . See classes blogs for more information.

Calling All Scientists

Please note as part of the Centennial Celebration the BUC will be hosting their first annual science competition for school and home educated students across the British Union.
The theme of the competition is ‘100 years of Science’ allowing participants to explore any aspect of science within the 1919-2019 timeframe. It was decided to have a broad theme for the first competition to allow for as much creativity as possible. Students can design and carry out a mini science project in line with the theme.

Why take part?
Science is all around us and not just in textbooks. Our aim is to awaken an interest in science for students of all ages. This nationwide competition is an opportunity for primary and secondary students to showcase their brilliant scientific ideas.
