TERMLY BIG SCIENCE QUESTION

TERMLY BIG SCIENCE QUESTION

 

We began 'The Big Science Question' initiative in the summer term of 2016-2017, linked to the School's theme of 'Even Bigger', and the question posed was ‘What would happen if the Earth stopped spinning?’ There were some incredibly creative entries and prizes were awarded to the top three. Straight away, pupils, teachers and parents were more enthused about Science, and their curiosity piqued.

Pupils now eagerly anticipate and enjoy entering the termly Big Science Question competition.

 

2017-2018 TERM 1 BIG SCIENCE QUESTION

At the start of 2017-2018, with term 1 and 'know yourself', pupils were asked this strange but serious question:

 

Again, there were some incredibly inventive responses, with the winner, David in Y5, producing a neatly bound and presented two-part essay written in the first person: the first part from the point of view of a cabbage (!), and the second part from the perspective of the human race. To top it off, he presented me with a real cabbage to support his entry!

 

Congratulations also to joint second prize winners Lyla from Year 2 and Keyana from Year 3.

 

2017-2018 TERM 2 BIG SCIENCE QUESTION

Linked to the school theme of 'UNDERSTAND OTHERS', this term's question is 'Why do we smile?' Don't forget to research and explain the science behind  the question.

Good luck!
