Science Week

Science week at Pyrcroft Grange felt quite a bit different this year due to the school closures as a result of Covid-19. However, it has been equally successful as previous years due to the fantastic support and engagement from our amazing    school community. Teachers across the school set a range of engaging science activities linked to all areas of the school curriculum. Each year group was able to explore new science learning and investigations, alongside revisiting sticky knowledge  to recap previous science themes. There was a diverse range of STEM experiments and challenges from our Pyrcroft scientists, including inventing covid-19 detecting glasses to growing a colour rainbow for key workers, exploring capillary action science. Themes such as forces, the environment and animal & plant life were also explored during the week.

In school, our key worker children dressed up as mad scientists for the day and created lava lamps and exploded volcanoes. They used their research skills to conduct a daily running challenge investigation, gathering, recording and   presenting their data appropriately. Through home learning, teachers introduced the children to scientists, encouraging them   to research the lives and inventions of Albert Einstein, Florence Nightingale, Sir Issac Newton, Thomas Edison, Michael Faraday, Marie Curie Sklodowska and Stephen Hawking.

We have been sent so many wonderful photos of the amazing science learning and experiments going on at home throughout the week. A huge thank you goes out to all the parents and carers for your support with helping us to create a successful science week for all children across the school.
