Lower School enjoy learning about "growth" for British Science Week
Science week is an annual event at Preston Manor School, which encourages the children to think about how the sciences, technology, engineering and maths relate to our everyday lives – whilst having fun!
Our Lower School marked this event on Friday 18 March and the day was full of scientific enquiry and fun learning!
This year's theme was "Growth" and children and staff were encouraged to come to school in dressed science related outfits. We had a wonderful turn out of children who went that extra mile. Some dressed as a tree, a flower, a balloon expanding and we had many scientists and medics!
We kicked of the day with a fun interactive assembly. In addition to this, we announced the winners of the annual science poster competition where students created a poster based on the theme of Growth.
Congratulations to Shania (Year 3), Navya (Year 4), Bidhara (Year 5) and Kaylan (Year 6).
The winning entries will now be submitted to the National British Science Week Poster competition.
In the afternoon, all the classes embarked on a fun adventure of investigating growth with their class teachers and our Year 9 Science students from the Upper School delivered their expertise facilitating fun and engaging investigations.
