This year, we investigated the properties of water. We looked at how this precious resource can be frozen and filtered.
We had a great STEM week in Foundation!
In the FSU, we loved being scientists for the week! We conducted lots of different experiments, including exploring the many ways in which boats can be made to move by using a pull or push force. We also all went home and searched through our toy boxes for toys which can be pulled or pushed. We had a great day showing our friends how to operate our toys. We also brought our scooters to school and we had to do lots of pushing to complete the Sport Relief Mile!
We invited families to come and join us for a range of experiments investigating forces. There were racing balloons, squishy slime and paper airplanes! Everyone had a great time with the hands-on science.
We were able to end our STEM week by safely observing an eclipse.
We found out that they don't happen very often, so it was a very lucky coincidence to have one during Science week!
Prizes were given out during the whole school assembly on Friday. There were vouchers for the winners of the recipe competition (you can try out the winning entries by clicking the PDF). There was also one prize for each key stage for the best costume. You can see the winners below:
