Last year, Avanti House Primary School, with the support of the British Science Association had an enlivening science week with lots of planned and unplanned activities:
EYFS – replanting in our much loved sensory garden and a visit from the animal person!
Year 1 and 2 – making recycled paper and replanting in our much loved sensory garden.
Year 3 – green fingers spreading their magic in the sensory garden but also pursuing their learning about forces, magnets and aeroplanes.
Year 4 – investigated how to undo water pollution and a parent workshop on hygiene (we all know how important it is to wash your hands, especially now!).
Year 5 – learnt about the journey of plastic and separating mixtures.
Year 6 – took their learning to another level (and building) by visiting our sister secondary school, Avanti House Secondary, for a morning of spectacular science and some learning on genetics.
A number of parent workshops had been arranged linked to science topics from the National Curriculum.
