During the week beginning Monday 13th March, we have been holding a series of Science-related events across the school to engage and inspire our pupils with science, engineering and technology, in support of National Science Week.
These have included a series of in-class workshops led by our teachers and teaching assistants, as well as visitors from the Mad Science Company and students from Loughborough University, offering our pupils the opportunity to take part in a range of hands-on experiments.
Many pupils have been on educational visits to the local trampoline park to investigate how forces work on our bodies or to the local garden centre to find out more about how plants grow.
Our Forest Schools Coordinator Maria Gallagher has been leading a range of forest skills sessions for pupils of all ages across the school, and pupils have had the opportunity to handle and observe a range of animals, including snakes, hamsters, snails and stick insects.
Many of our classes also received visits from Duggie the Dog, our resident Pets as Therapy dog, who has now visited the school on several occasions, and never fails to raise a smile from our students or staff.
