National Science Week 2016

Last week the Science department celebrated British Science Week 2016 with a series of fun activities for students to get involved with. Mrs Hall organised talks from three local professionals who work locally in jobs that require a science background.  

Firstly midwife Sam Field talked about her role and answered questions, Emma Hines 9P1 commented: “I found this very interesting because it told me how to get there, how become a midwife.”

Thursday lunchtime saw a visit from Mr Alan Frost, owner of Agralan, a local company specialising in organic methods of pest control. He brought with him the star attraction: a cołony of bees sent especially from Belgium for the occasion.

Students commented: "The bee talk was very interesting, we learned a lot about worker bees and that the queen bee only produces worker males until she is about to die, she then has a girl to become queen!”

Finally on Friday 18  Mr Ben Husband an experienced nurse working at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children came to talk about his job. One comment stated, “ The talk about the children's hospital was funny and educational we learned about what nurses do at the hospital and some of the reasons children come in. Overall it is an experience I will never forget!” 

Mrs Hall also organised the Great Big Science Hunt, a competition to collect as many famous scientists names hidden around the school as possibleThere were over 75 to collect with a prize for the winner or winning team …...winner to be announced! 

Finally within science lessons the Just a Minute talks were held. Students researched and gave a minute long talk on a science subject with the best talks going onto the final this week to find the overall winner of Just a Minute and the prize!
