What a vibrant, energizing time we have had in the Primary school this week as we celebrated Science week. In the UK, British Science Week,  run by the British Science Association is a celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths, featuring entertaining and engaging events and activities. British Science Week provides a platform to stimulate and support teachers to produce and participate in STEM events and activities. This was certainly the case this week! Just some of the activities planned for the children were creating ArtBots, mini robots designed and made by Year 6 which could create their own artwork. Year 1 got Fan-Static in their use of balloons to investigate the effects of static electricity. In addition, I have seen parachutes floating around the school and mini rockets launched on the astro turf. The highlight for many of course was the chance to visit the Wonder Dome on Tuesday, a planetarium show that took the children through space as well as exploring the human body, rocks and fossils; the children were mesmerized. Environmental science also featured heavily in our activities with our children in Years 1 and 2 exploring the beauty of the San Doong Cave and then becoming involved in a debate on whether this area should be developed by tourists with the building of a cable car. As always, I am so impressed with the creativity and enthusiasm of our children which was so evident this week along with the problem solving, collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills we expect of our 21st Century learners. The week culminated with a STEM House Day where a wide range of both science and maths activities were planned by all teachers in the school and a celebration assembly to showcase all of the learning that had taken place. My thanks in particular go to Mr. Barney and Ms. Thu for organizing such a wonderful week and of course to all the teachers and children who participated so enthusiastically. Each child today will bring home a WonderDome book, which follows on from the video. In the textbook, there are instructions on how to download an app. With this app, the students can use the camera on their device and hold it up to the pages of their book, which will come to life and animate on their screens with augmented reality. Do take some time this weekend to explore this with your child and to talk about what they have discovered in school this week.

Have a wonderful weekend.
