Year 1 & 2 Science Week, by Miss Gough-Hughes
Date: 12th Mar 2021 @ 2:43pm
Throughout the week, the children in Year 1 and 2 have thoroughly enjoyed participating in British Science Week 2021. The theme this year is 'Innovating for the Future' and the children have been being innovative and showing their understanding. Innovation is a part of people, materials, animals, nature or anything else in our everyday lives. Innovation is all around us.
We have been investigating and looking at fruit, going on a bug hunt and looking closely at the features of bugs using a microscope, created our own robo-bugs inspired by our bug hunt and the innovativity of robots that are created these days and also researched famous scientists/innovators, writing interesting information about them.
This weekend, we have an exciting poster competition for your child to compete in, continuing our exciting Science themed week. Please login to your child's Seesaw account to see this task and how your child can participate. There will be a prize for the winner in year 1 and the winner in year 2.
Well done to all of the children for participating incredibly well in their first week back together! :)
