Science Week powers on despite school closure

Look at those ices go!

Look at those ices go!

Who would have thought that learning about science was exciting as… er, watching ice melt? But it was a fascinating business for Columba class this morning as the children tested their predictions against real-time melt rates for a range of different coloured ices. This is the second day of a whole-school science extravanza, which has age-appropriate experiments going on in every single class.

Special thanks to the amazing Ms Khan who not only organised and led the whole thing, but has saved Science Week from decimation by the school closure on Thursday.  Thanks to her, the Science Museum has agreed to reschedule that day of their visit to our school for Thursday 9th October.  And they’ll still be coming this Friday – 11th July – as originally planned.  That’s very good news for our children, and for the investment made by HSA Learning Treats.

Finally, thanks to parents and carers who volunteered to help out, despite the enormous number of school activities at this time of year.  Once we sorted out the organisational hiccups, it’s been really good to have you in the classrooms!  Don’t forget to take pictures…
