British Science Week at St. Barnabas CE First and Middle School
St. Barnabas CE First and Middle School St Barnabas CE First & Middle School took part in the British Science Week between Monday 14th March and Monday 21st March. Each group took part in a different activity linked to this year’s theme: ‘Growth’. Activities included gardening, making slime, discovering about the brain and illusions and life on Mars. Year 7 took part in a live lesson hosted by Worcester University and took part in different practical activities. Each teacher looked out for students who showed excellent science and enquiry skills and these students were awarded certificates in the celebration assembly at the end of the week. As well as this, we held a poster competition linked to the theme of ‘Growth’. Two children from each class were selected for their amazing posters and they were given an award at the end of the week. These posters will also be submitted into the national British Science Week poster competition. On Monday 21st March we were visited by the Science Education Group. Years 4, 5 and 7 took part in a science workshop about Space in which they were able to explore the solar system through virtual reality headsets! This activity went down very well with the children! Thank you to the St Barnabas Friends group for helping with the Space workshop. Well done to the children of St Barnabas for your effort and enthusiasm during Science Week!
