British Science Week

We have had a wonderful Science Week here at Rosecliffe. The children have had a chance to take part in a range of activities – from workshops, to experiments and meeting the chicks in Camellia. We would like to say a huge thank you to the parent volunteers, who have given up their time this week to provide our pupils with unique experiences and opportunities.

Petals and Buttercups have been growing cress, discussing what a plant needs to grow and watching nature at work. They might even get the chance to taste some at the end!

Crocus have also planted their sunflower seeds, we look forward to having some big bright sunflowers in the coming weeks and months.

Camellia have had an exciting week, their eggs arrived on Tuesday afternoon and since then the children have been watching as they hatch, dry off and move into their brood box.

In KS2, as well as their growth experiments, Lilac and Lotus have had lots of visitors and workshops all about STEM. They have met scientists online, had talks about vaccine development and medicines, met two different engineers, built towers and even designed their own environmentally friendly home. All of our visitors have praised the enthusiasm and curiosity of our children here at Rosecliffe and we hope this week has helped them ‘grow’ their ideas of both what Science is and some STEM jobs they might want to pursue in the future.
