Nicol Mere celebrated British Science Week by completing a variety of tasks and activities in the childrens classes. The week was finished off supurbly by sharing what they did with parents in a science fair. Groups of children took a range of activities into the hall and were on hand to explain the science behind them.
The children all experienced the partial solar eclipse this morning. Mrs Rostron did a quick assembly explaining what an eclipse was and then the children went outside to feel the coldness and watch the light fade. Mrs Bullen’s husband gave the school some welders glass so that the children were able to look at the eclipse safely.
