Upton House delights young Scientists.
Young scientists at Upton House school have had a magical, weird and wonderful time at their School Science week.
From explosions and potions to space exploration, dressing up and entertaining snakes and lizards, Upton House pupils have been captivated by the wonders of science!
The week began in space with the Wonder Dome planetarium which filled the school hall. Astronauts brought stories and experiences from the depths of space while the children gazed at the wonders of the universe above them.
Outside learning trips included a visit to the Forest School, the Natural History museum for some dinosaur explorations and the Brooklands motor museum for some hands-on engineering fun. Back at school, children welcomed a reptile expert, Mr Elkington for an opportunity to hear about and hold some of natures most wonderful creatures; snakes, geckos, bearded dragons and tree frogs delighted the pupils.
Later in the week children and parents stayed at school for an interactive family Science evening. The school was transformed into a giant science laboratory as each classroom offered hands-on practical science activities and experiments. The black-out UV room delighted young and old, while magnets, electricity, parts of the body and food experiments captivated Upton explorers on a mission to collect their mission and collect science stickers in each room.
The week concluded with 'Scientific Dress-up Day' and a visit from the Science Boffins for children from Nursery to Year 6. Workshops were held with magical gases, potions and experiments galore. The children are still talking about how fun and exciting science is!Published: October 23 2018
