Key Stage 3 scientists impress
It has been an exciting few months for our young scientists in Key Stage 3. On 22nd January, we welcomed representatives of the world-famous Science Museum to come in and work with our pupils through the Building Bridges programme. The day started with the whole of year 7, 8 and 9 enthralled in an exciting and entertaining community time assembly on Electricity. A selected group were then trained to perform a science presentation of their own. They prepared, rehearsed and delivered some excellent presentations which linked objects in the Science Museum to their own science demonstrations. They were judged on their presentation skills, and the facilitators, who visit many schools, commented on how impressed they were with our pupils: “their presentations were amazing!”. Meanwhile, the KS3 science club continues to enthuse pupils, with recent activities including marbling milk and investigating the cooling curve of milk.
