Pupils Turn Scientists for Science Fortnight

Pupils Turn Scientists for Science Fortnight

To celebrate British Science Week, Wandsworth Prep enjoyed a fantastic Science Fortnight filled with exploring the wonderful world of Science.

All children are naturally curious, which makes science an ideal subject for them to learn. Science allows children to explore their world and discover new things. It is an active subject, containing activities such as hands-on experiments. This makes science well-suited to active younger children. Science is an important part of the foundation for education for all children.  

Science Fortnight at Wandsworth Prep helps to in bed the skills necessary to carry out whole experiments, giving the time to plan, predict, carry out, observe and record results and write conclusions. It also allows the children to discuss their findings and ask more questions about the world around us. 

The first week of Wandsworth Prep's Science fortnight ended with a Planetarium where the children got to go inside and see space up close which was so inspiring for them all. As well as this, the school were lucky enough to have some parents come in to conduct workshops to help educate children about Science in the real world. Some of our wonderful visitors included the Little House of Science and Karin Altendorfer teaching the children about different soils, Alex and Lily who taught the children about the weather, Brian Laine, who told us all about space journeys and the Cassini mission, Satya Jackson who discussed artificial intelligence and Tom Finch who was previously a Science teacher and conducted an experiment with the children about different types of paper planes and how they fly.

Throughout Science fortnight, each class conducted an experiment which they presented at the school Science fair at the end of the second week. The Science fair was a brilliant way for all the children to showcase their amazing learning of Science fortnight. Well done to all the children throughout Science fortnight, a huge thank you to all the parents and visitors for their brilliant workshops and we all very much look forward to next year!
