What a week! There was a real buzz around school as we celebrated British Science Week at Kingsland. We had visits from Science Wizards, the Police Collision Investigation Unit and Owl Experience. A group of Year 5 and 6 children visited the Big Bang Fair on Thursday before everyone in school dressed up in Science costumes.
In case you missed it we’ve put together a selection of highlights for you to catch up on everything that went on in and outside of school. Remember to follow the school on Twitter or Facebook to stay up to date with the latest news.
The Science Wizards
The Science Wizards have the aim of sparking everyone’s imagination, so that they can see that science can be fun! They present fun, hands-on science, that the children can enjoy. Key Stage Two experimented with gravity, friction and air flow using exciting scientific experiments.
The Collision Investigation Unit
Roger and Sarah visited Kingsland and worked with Nursery, Reception and Year 5. In the morning they explained the importance of staying safe on the road and tried on some of the Police uniform before taking a look round the car and all of the equipment they have to take to the scene of an accident.
Afterwards, Roger used the car to perform a skid on the playground so that Year 5 could investigate the incident and whilst trying to calculate how fast the vehicle was travelling.
The Big Bang Fair
The school minibuses, Catherine and Columbus, have been on their travels yet again helping to transport a group of young future Scientists from Kingsland to The Big Bang Fair at the NEC in Birmingham. During the children’s exciting travels they explored hundreds of interactive activities, watched a show, built lego robots, experienced virtual reality and took part in lots of experiments.
The Big Bang Fair was a truly spectacular experience that will be very hard to forget!
The Big Bang was the most fantastic, most amazing experience.
The Owl Experience
Bob, from the Owl Experience, visited Kingsland to share information and facts about Owls with Year 2. The children were encouraged to ask questions and watched the birds in action. They also had the opportunity to handle the birds as they flew across the school hall.
Celebrating British Science Week
On Friday everyone in school got involved by dressing up in Science costumes. There were some fantastic costumes and we want to say thank you and well done to everyone for the incredible effort that went into making them.
