At Bushmead children will have a deep understanding of a wide range of scientific ideas. They will use their understanding to help them to ask and answer scientific questions. They will be able to choose the best way to answer their questions, using different types of scientific enquiry to investigate. They will be able to draw conclusions from data and observations, use evidence to justify their ideas and use their scientific knowledge and understanding to explain their findings.
During science week, our Year 5 science buskers joined the Year 2 children at lunch time to demonstrate some simple science experiments. The Year 2 children then had a go at the activities and were very surprised by what they found!
British Science Week
British Science Week took place in March 2022. This year's theme is 'Growth'.
A geology virtual visit!
As Year 3 are currently learning all about rocks, they had a special visit from Richard, who is a geologist. He showed the children a wide variety of rocks, explained why geology is so important in everyday life and answered lots of interesting questions.
Our master bridge builders are at work at science club. You can try this activity too using the Crest Superstar Challenge activity, Bridge Blunder.
