THE NATIONAL SCIENCE WEEK MARCH 2020
British Science Week ended with all key stage 3 classes demonstrating their understanding of this year’s theme “Our Diverse Planet”. The week started with year 8 classes engaged with an outside speaker on buoyancy and ended with year 7 in the hall with Eagle Heights. Throughout the week year 9 were focusing on how technologies can help to sustain our planet and research alternative sources of energy. They then made models and poster design on their finds. Year 7 and 8 were creative in lessons and used recyclable materials to create artworks. It was great to see the enthusiasm and hear how knowledgeable and eloquent the boys were at their presentations as each class explained their learning to everyone.
