Welcome to Springfield Primary School’s Science page. Through this page, you will be able to see a glimpse of the wonderful science that happens at our school.
British Science Week ran from the 9th – 18th of March and it is the ‘Year of the Engineer’. To celebrate this occasion, during this week in school, each year group planned for a whole day of Science. The children in each class were required to build their own Marble Runs. Regardless of whether the children were in the lower or upper part of the school, each and every child worked as part of a team to build their runs. The ability that our children demonstrated to think creatively whilst persevering when they encountered problems with their model was excellent to see. Thank you to all parents/carers for supporting your children with the gathering of their materials. As ever, your support is very much appreciated! Please enjoy looking at some pictures from the week.
Sophia Brearley in Year 3 Madrid has combined her history knowledge with scientific enquiry! She has been learning all about the Egyptians in her topic lessons and created her very own moveable lizard that includes a working circuit inside. According to Sophia, it took her a whole day to create this project and she had a little help from adults at home – thank you very much for all of your support. Mr Pryle sent Sophia to show Mr Parums and his class; they were all amazed by her super creation and Sophia left with 23 merits and a head teacher’s award!! Hard work paying off – Well Done Sophia!
Fantastic Science in Year 5
In Year 5, we have been learning about the solar system. Our teachers assigned us the task of completing a project all about space. We chose to complete two tasks and we brought these into school to show off to our peers on Friday 9th February. We learned so much when completing this project and our enquiry skills were put to full use. We hope that that everyone enjoys looking at our projects and understands how much effort we have put in. We are all extremely happy with our final designs.Written by Joshua Moses and Beth Nutter, Science Leaders.
