Science Week

at Braeburn Primary & Nursery School


From Monday 13th March to Friday 17th March children at Braeburn School celebrated British Science Week in school by taking part in lots of different practical science activities.  Activities included planting seeds, setting up investigations, observing real live chicks and explosive, exciting experiments related to changing state.

The Year 6 children had a day out in Cayton Bay looking for fossils with local geologist Will Watts, director of Hidden Horizons.  The day involved exploring the amazing secrets hidden in our Yorkshire coast.  The children found lots of interesting fossils including lots ammonites and belemites.

All of KS.2 took part in a Big Science Quiz in the hall covering topics including friction, human body, plants, space, life cycles and electricity.  There were 5 winners who received science books.  The top scorer got 19 out of 20.

At the end of the week each class teacher chose a child to receive a science Star certificate in assembly.   Mrs Jones, science co-ordinator, said “everyone participated well throughout the week and was enthusiastic and excited about science.  Lots of children went home and did science activities with their parents using ideas from the British Science week website.( “.
