British Science Week 2017

Video.MOV

British Science Week is an annual event to raise awareness and encourage everyone to become a scientist. The theme for this year's British Science Week was change. Our aim at The Brow was to encourage the children to think about and investigate the changes happening in the world around us, from seasons and climate to materials and energy. 

Science Week Diary:

Monday 13th March 2017

Science week began with a whole school assembly where we watched some videos of the biggest breakthroughs or 'changes' made as a result of Scientific discoveries during the past year. These included the VR Playstation, pandas no longer being classed as endangered and the landing of a rocket at sea.

This afternoon class 3 were lucky to take part in a Science session with Paul from Norton Priory Museum. Norton Priory have created a bee hotel to try to help combat the decline in the bee population in the UK. Back in September, C3 went to see the Bee hotel. Today they got to learn some more about the bees, makes beeswax candles and plant some wildflower seeds with Paul in our new school bedder. How exciting!

After school, parents and children were invited to The Brow's annual treasure hunt! This was very exciting because there were two Science 'changes' themed hunts which were made for KS1 and KS2. Children had to look around the school building for clues, complete various Science activities and answer questions.

Science week came to an end with a lovely assembly to share and celebrate all of our work during the week. We were very lucky to have Paul from Norton Priory join us again as a guest speaker! Paul shared some more exciting information about bees with the children and even brought his bee keeper suit for volunteers to try on! Did you know that once a bee has stung a person an alarm pheromone is released which other bees use as a signal to sting the same place again?
Throughout the week, each class conducted their own experiments based around the theme of change. Please take a look at the videos and photos to appreciate the hard work of each class. There was a 'Famous Scientist' of the day and each class discussed how that Scientist had changed the world. Also, children watched videos about the work of these scientists in the hall at lunch time!
