British Science Week

This year’s British Science Week theme was ‘Time’.

Next year marks the 30th anniversary of British Science Week, so we celebrated the passage of time since the week began, while also looking towards the future!

In the Prep assembly, we explored how humans first began to notice time, and in Pre-Prep assembly, we tried to estimate how long 1 minute was, which was very peaceful but not very accurate! During their Science lessons, Year 1 and Year 2 children became Timeologists for the day, carrying out different activities to time or measure in a certain amount of time. Year 3 and Year 4 girls made little hovercrafts and tested their reaction times, while Year 5 and Year 6 pupils looked at the evolution of humans and created models of them.

Mrs. Charl, Head of Science, transformed into Prue Leith for the day when girls in Year 5 and Year 6 took part in The Great Science Bake Off in collaboration with Warwick Junior School. There were myriad science-themed cakes, including a selection of body parts such as an eyeball, a heart, and lungs, as well as volcanoes, the periodic table, and the Solar System, to name just a few. The standard of entries was outstanding. The judging panel was very impressed. Well done to all entrants!

The children and staff were encouraged to take part in a Foundation-wide Science in Nature photo competition. We had so many wonderful entries from all the schools! Congratulations, to the Warwick Prep winners:
