British Science Week has officially landed and the staff and children at Stafford Leys Primary School could not be more excited.
This week all classes will be running fun hands on science activities. To launch the week we held an assembly where children found out how fun science can be, and on Tuesday children will hear about how they can take part in the National Poster competition 'Discover and Explore'
If you are interesting in taking part in some real live science at home you don't even have to leave your sofa to get involved you can get on board with the citizen science project. This years citizen science partnership is with The Plastic Tidewho are a charity made up of ocean, science and tech enthusiasts obsessed with working out ways to clean up our oceans of marine litter and plastic. Theirsimple citizen science project works by getting members of the public to tag images of the coast that contain pieces of litter. During British Science Week, we want to help tag 250,000 images. Will you join us in the fight against plastic pollution? Stafford Leys are really enjoying National Science Week, and as a little extra this year we really want children to take part in the National Poster competition as part of their school homework. The theme this year is 'Exploration and Discovery' and children need to design a 2D poster showcasing Science that fits around this theme. Posters could include Science that we have already discovered or explored or something new that they would like to explore.
Children could show 'The first man on the moon - to the Hubble telescope discoveries', or 'Charles Darwin's work to - discoveries we are making in genetics' today. If children would like an extra challenge then they could discover or explore their own science and become curious about the world around them. Why not take a walk in the garden and explore the habitats that they find !Find different food containers in the kitchen which one is the most waterproof or which one will roll across the floor the furthest. The choices for children to 'Explore and Discover' are endless.
Whatever they do just present this as a 2D poster on A4 or A3 paper and hand it in by Friday the 23rd March to their class teacher, Mrs Hollier or Mrs Purkiss.
