Science Week 2021
Next week (8th -14th March) is British Science Week, a celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.
The official science week theme for 2021 is ‘Innovating the Future’ and we will be following this theme by exploring scientists, inventors and important creations throughout the week. In addition to this, we will be also undertaking some exciting experiments to answer the question ‘Can we create a rainbow?’ so that the children across the Federation can experience the awe and wonder of science.
It has been a difficult year due to the Covid19 pandemic, however the rainbow has been a symbol of hope for the future and a reminder of our wonderful NHS. As well as celebrating Science Week through activities at school, we are holding a competition for you to enjoy as a family at home.
We would like you to experiment with creating your own rainbows and upload photographs and videos of your creations to either Tapestry (Nursery and Year R) Purple Mash (Infants) or Seesaw (Juniors) - prizes will be awarded for the best rainbows!
Some ideas will be uploaded to Tapestry, Purple Mash and Seesaw, but there are many other ideas available online (www.pinterest.com has some lovely ideas for experiments).
Please upload your rainbow entries by Monday 15th March. We hope you have lots of fun exploring the wonderful world of science and we can’t wait to see your rainbows!
