British Science Week 2023
The theme for British Science Week this year is CONNECTIONS.
Miss Gelder from Wales High School created a video lesson for us. She choose the activity BRIDGE BLUNDER from the Primary Activity British Science Week pack. This activity is designed to get you thinking about the connections between weights, forces and measures.
We tested the bridges by adding pebbles. We made a bridge with paper and noticed that it was strong enough to hold the weight of one pebble. Every child/group managed to improve and strengthen their design.
Our winning bridge was made by Olly. It held all of the pebbles and didn't bend at all!
Look at our photos below.

RSPB Wild Challenge
Last year, Y3/4D took part in the RSPB Wild Challenge and completed their Bronze award. This year, we are aiming to achieve our Silver award and maybe even Gold. Each award involves completing 6 challenges. 3 challenges need to Help nature and 3 need to Experience nature.
This year, we have completed 3 challenges. Wild Writing linked to our Science/Art work based on Wilson 'Snowflake' Bentley, Weather Wizard by enjoying playing out in the snow and Planting for Wildlife with Rykneld homes and the Killamarsh Conservation Group.
We only have two more challenges to complete to achieve our Silver award!
