Garlinge Science Week goes off with a bang

Science Week at Garlinge Primary School & Nursery

Children and staff at Garlinge Primary School & Nursery expressed their love of science as they celebrated Garlinge Science Week.

A full range of activities were organised across all year groups to celebrate the subject. From studying a range of scientists and their creations, to completing a wide range of exciting experiments, children were given the opportunity to become scientists themselves, explore a range of hypotheses and get a little messy.

Every year group, from nursery up to year 6, also welcomed Fizz Pop Science into school to deliver an exciting assembly with fire, colour changing liquids, loud bangs and explosions of elephant toothpaste. The children could not believe the magic that was happening before their eyes.

Natasha Subramaniam, science lead at Garlinge Primary School, said she was delighted with how the staff and pupils embraced the projects and was thrilled with how much fun the children had.

She added: “We wanted to use the week to raise the profile of science even further throughout the school. The pupils are all very engaged in science and it gives them a great chance to work practically and think scientifically, both inside and outside the classroom.”

Head of school Anna Northrop said: “It was lovely to see the children so engaged in their learning and experiencing such exciting experiments first hand.”
