Science Day Friday 17th March
This was an exciting occasion for the children to show-case their work, discuss it with peers and share their love of learning across the age ranges: Key Stage 1 shared their science investigations and knowledge with Key Stage 2 in the morning, Key Stage 2 shared with Key Stage 1 and parents in the afternoon. They were all incredibly enthusiastic about science. Many adults reported hearing some wonderful questioning and explanations between the children and those visiting their stands.
ATOM Science Festival Friday 24th March
Two teams from our school entered the ATOM Science Festival, which was held at the Amey Theatre, Abingdon School. The teams presented their projects on the theme of energy and atoms. The project was launched in January at a session led by a scientist from the JET Laboratory. Here at St. Edmund’s School, our teams have since been supported by a STEM ambassador and sixth former science ambassadors from Fitzharrys School, as well as teaching staff, in designing and creating their projects. All of the Key Stage 2 classes visited the festival during the morning.
