Science Week in your school

The idea behind the week is to raise awareness, spark enthusiasm and celebrate science.

Science has led to the discovery of everything from gravity to medicine. Science is based on curiosity - and when children aim to learn more about the world around them, it is science that often holds the clues they need for a better understanding.

Science helps shape children's development. As they learn to ask questions, make predictions, observe, test, and then communicate their findings, they are developing critical science skills.

The schools will be running a whole series of projects involving most of the children as follows:

Reception (Life below water)
Year 1 (Good health and well-being)
Year 2 (Zero hunger and no poverty)
Year 3 (Clean water and sanitation)
Year 4 (Responsible consumption and production)
Year 5 (Affordable and clean energy)

Year 6 (Climate action)
Year 7 (Recyclable craft products)
Year 8 (Sustainable fashion)
Year 9 (Timothy Peake/ Hovercraft)
Year 10 (Posters and information - our diverse planet)
