School webteam: March 2016
As part of National Science Week, we have held a special Science Week in school which began with an interesting launch assembly on Monday led by Mrs Hayward and the Green Team. Their focus was 'rocket science' as the team have applied to the RHS for rocket seeds, which have been stored in space and looked after by Tim Peake. It is hoped we will be successful and carry out a controlled experiment to discover if microgravity has an effect on seed growth. In the meantime, Green team have devised their own experiment to discover whether freezing seeds for 24 hours has an effect on growth. Each break time and lunchtime, they have been planting rocket seeds with all of the children in school.
The Green Team and Mrs Hayward were also proud to announce that our school has been awarded the Eco Schools Bronze Award in recognition of all of the work they have been doing in school — well done to the Green Team and Mrs Hayward for this fabulous achievement! Mrs Naden and Mrs Howard have been busy talking to classes about how they have used science in their jobs and both have been impressed with the children's interest and enthusiasm as well as their super questions about this work.
