Dear Parents and Carers,
Last week in school we were engaged in British Science week – with each class dedicating an extra session to science that was based around the theme of ‘Growth’.
In my assembly last week, I spoke to the children about the many different things that exhibit growth. We spoke about the obvious growth that we can see before us in things such as plants, animals and humans but we also spoke about more abstract growth such as having a growth mind set and growing friendships.
As a follow up to British Science Week we have asked the children if they would like to take part in a National competition based around the theme of ‘Growth’ – organised by the British Science Organisation. The challenge is to create a poster that explains a form of growth. This could be showing a simple step by step diagram of how a plant, animal or human grows or it could be a poster explaining growth in a different context such as how a city grows, or how our mind grows, it could even be as big as how the universe grows! No topic is off limits really as long as it links back to growth.
The judges have said that they will be looking at the following when making their decisions:
There are more details about the competition on the British Science Week website.
If your child wishes to enter the competition, this can be done either directly through the website or your child can bring their entry into school by Thursday 7th April (I will send them off on your child’s behalf). We have had some amazing entries so far and I will be putting up some examples onto our website and the school Facebook page later today to help you come up with some ideas.
