Congratulations to 2nd and 3rd on receiving an ESB Science Blast Award for their project entitled ‘Are the biggest magnets always the strongest magnets?’ The children presented their project for judging using Zoom to a Science professional on Thursday 4th April. The children received great praise and wonderful feedback from the judge.
ESB Science Blast is a non-competitive programme for Primary School classes. It encourages children’s natural curiosity, asking them to investigate the Science behind a simple question.
Experiments were enthusiastically carried out over the course of a few weeks. It was discovered that the size and strength of magnets don’t always go together. The children made some fun and unique games that use magnets. They look forward to having time to play with these soon. Overall, a fantastic time was had by all. Well done to our budding Scientists in 2nd and 3rd. We are extremely proud of your success!
The children in the senior room recently had the wonderful opportunity of creating a vibrant wild flower mural on our school yard. Artist Jessica Challacombe was a fantastic leader in this project, and created something that exceeded all our expectations. We are thrilled with how it turned out, making our outdoor space more colourful and welcoming. The funding from our proactive Parents Association enabled such a project to take place, therefore we would like to extend a huge thank you to them also. Well done to all involved!
