To begin science week, we went for a walk around Eland Lodge Equestrian Centre. We looked for animals, plants, signs of spring and lots more. We asked and answered questions throughout and were excited to share our newly learned facts.
Another interesting event this week included visitors from JCB coming into school to help us with a STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) activity. Each year group had a different JCB digger to build as part of a team. This involved us following instructions and manipulating the parts to ensure we would build a stable vehicle.
Planting seeds and trees was an enjoyable part of the week too. After learning about the COP26 summit (UN Climate Change Conference), Class 3 contacted to the Wildlife Trust to ask for some trees to plant on school grounds as a way of helping the environment and combatting climate change. We worked together to plant both the trees and seeds as a school, ending our week on a direct link to the main theme of science week this year ‘growth’.
