Last week was Science Week at Holy Mary, which was based around the theme of connections. Nearly all innovations in science, technology, engineering and maths are built on connections, so at Holy Mary the children spent the week discovering the different ways connections appear across all areas of science.
Throughout the week the children took part in many hands-on activities. In CDV the children built string telephones, created slime, explored their senses and built a huge skeleton. In Serrano and Cinca, the children built structures out of newspaper and magazines to support the weight of their teachers, became news reporters to discuss climate change, and built the digestive system. They also performed surgery on a ‘swimming pool’ person to build the patient’s heart. All three buildings created a school garden and attended a science workshop. The children had lots of fun and can not wait for next year’s science week!
