Through the events of the past year, we’ve seen the crucial importance of scientific knowledge in our world. To celebrate this amazing field of human endeavor, from the 5th to the 14th March, we’re showing our support for British Science Week!
Organised by the British Science Association, the event aims to put a spotlight on science, technology, engineering, and maths in the UK. British men and women throughout history have contributed greatly to the global advancement of science. As a school, it is our job to help educate the scientists of the future.
At The Manor CofE VC Primary School, we recognise the importance of science and the role that it plays in our curriculum. Science is an exciting and practical subject that allows pupils to put their practical skills to good use. Through the combination of observation and critical thinking, children gain an understanding of the world around them.
This week, we have all taken an aspect of farming and are planning to delve deep into the wonders of the Science behind farming.
We will all take part in a live sessions provided by the National Farmers Union which help to tackle the questions of:
What came first the chicken or the egg? (KS1)
What do vets do? (LKS2)
What would the future be like with farming robots? (UKS2)
We will be completing activities in order to answer the big question: How important our farms to our livelihood?
By celebrating British Science Week, we work to ensure that our pupils develop the knowledge and key skills required for any future career path.
