The staff, parents and pupils of Leswalt Primary enjoyed an afternoon of Science as part of British Science Week celebration. British Science Week runs from 9th-16th March and is designed to raise awareness of all things ‘Science-y’ and encourage boys and girls to hone their investigative skills.
The Leswalt Primary pupils worked on a range of Science tasks; Magic Ink to Poo from the Past, Coding with Lego WeDo to bird nest building, programming the Mouse Maze to Electrical Circuits to name but a few! Parents enjoyed working on these with pupils too. Creating ‘poo’ for a Science experiment – what’s not to like! Parents and pupils got stuck into the activities with great gusto - having a shot at the many STEM (Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering) activities on offer. It was a very busy but fun afternoon. One mum was amazed at how quickly the time flew!
Fun Science activities, all working together and raising awareness of important ecological issues equals a very successful afternoon’s learning. Watch out for those future scientists!
