What a fantastic way to begin their Bright Sparks! IPC Project. Not only did it inspire our budding scientists, by all accounts it was a unique and enriching experience.
Year 4 spent their time really focusing on all things magnets, they enjoyed the hands on opportunity to explore materials and discover their magnetic properties and they created their own magnets. The experience of spending time with specialised equipment and experts was, the teachers suggested, in many ways better than an actual visit to the centre. The development of new scientific vocabulary and engaging with the complex concept of magnetic fields were new and exciting opportunities that came from the visit. Year 4 now know that they can use circuits to create electromagnets. If you have any magnetic questions, we have a year group of magnet experts, so just ask them anything!
You may have read recent releases in the press relating to a relaxation in the rules surrounding the wearing of masks by children under the age of 6. We have not yet received any amendments from the government regarding the rules on our students wearing masks in school. We will of course keep you abreast of any changes should we receive any updates to the regulations.
