Science Week 2023

We thoroughly enjoyed our fantastic Science Week, organised by Mrs Rose. We loved the opportunities to get together as a whole school, taking on challenges, workshops and competitions that involved everyone from Nursery to Year 6!      


The week of term saw us taking part in a variety of challenges, workshops and activities, including:

  • Our annual Egg Drop Challenge, building a contraption that could safely transport an egg from the top of the Infant hall to the floor below.  
  • Workshops with Teaching Talons, who brought a collection of animals into school, including guinea pigs, an owl, cockroaches, tortoises and a very friendly dog. 
  • The K’nex Challenge, where we worked in pairs to build a bridge that allowed a boat to go underneath and a car to go over the top. 
  • Lots of science activities in class, including bug hunts, kite making, construction challenges and research projects.

As you can probably tell, it was a really busy week, packed with fab opportunities to learn about science and what it means to be a scientist.


"Subject leaders have thought carefully about how pupils build their knowledge and skills over time from early years to Year 6. They have developed highly consistent planning and methods of delivery that help pupils learn well over time."
