13th to 17th March 2017 was Science Week
Last Friday, 11th March, saw the launch of Science Week. We exploded onto the scene by embracing two themes: Science Week and the forthcoming Comic Relief Day on 24th March. These themes led to our whole school cross curricular ‘Change’ theme. On Friday 24th for Comic Relief the theme is Pop stars.
We were privileged to have workshops led by Dr Barnett who came from Brazil to deliver talks to our students on venoms, toxins and what they do. We then welcomed back Reptile Events, a company committed to reptile rescue. They brought along a selection of reptiles for our students to meet. This included a bearded dragon, blue tongued skink, 2 corn snakes, 2 royal pythons and an albino Burmese python that weighed 5 stone. The braver students had a chance to hold the animals while other students enjoyed watching the animals and talking to the reptile handlers.
