Welcome to our school science page where you can find lots of information about the science club and more.
As well as our weekly Science lessons we celebrate the annual national Science and Engineering Week across the country. This year we focused on 'change' within the context of the Roald Dahl book 'George's Marvellous Medicine.
In Science Club, we make predictions for experiments which we carry out the following week. After we have completed our experiment, we check to see if our prediction is correct, we then write up our results based on the experiment and our prediction.
Some examples of experiments which we have carried out in Science Club this academic year are:
- Colourful Sugar
- Coke and Mento Explosion
- Rice Krispy Cakes, the Science behind this experiment was to see a solid (chocolate) melting into a liquid
- Thirsty Brick
- Oobleck (solid and a liquid at the same time)
- Tornado in a Bottle
- Float or Sink Orange
- Melting Experiment (ice cubes)
- Sound experiments
We also covered some Geology, we went exploring in the Nursery Garden and gathered different rocks. When we came back into Club we compared hardness, shape, texture. We also spent some time measuring and weighing the rocks we had collected the week before.

Fun Science websites
Science News - Useful resources
This organisation offers free visits to schools to run outdoor education workshops for children. They are also keen to work with groups of teachers to help develop outdoor education provision in schools. These programmes are fully funded and available across the UK. The website also provides free resources for you to build your own lesson plans to engage and inspire your students.
They offer some full training weekends (cost associated) in Oxfordshire and Cardiganshire.
RAF 100 Project
The Historical Association, the Institute of Physics and the Royal Air Force are working together to deliver an exciting project for schools which uses the story of the RAF to explore concepts in both history and physics. Participating schools will have the opportunity to contribute to the national celebrations planned for summer 2018.
