Science Competition

Thank you everyone for your fantastic entries for the science competition, it was so difficult to choose the winners. Have a look at some of their fabulous creations. 

World Book Day celebrations

Today in assembly we celebrated all of the hard work from World Book Day when each class shared some of their work on a class book or author. This was incredible to see and I was really impressed with all of the classes. It shows how much we love reading at Broadbent Fold.

We also rewarded our competition winners who designed a new book cover for their class text. Our runner-ups and winners all received a certificate and a prize. The winning entries will proudly be displayed in our library. 

#Let Girls Play

We received a certificate for us taking part in #Letgirlsplay day. Look at our pictures across the blogs, lots to celebrate with equality in sport. 

Science Fair

Today, Year 2 took part in lot’s of fun science experiments which Year 4 prepared and delivered. These activities included: chemical reactions, optical illusions, learning about famous Scientists, locating and labelling human body parts, working with magnets and much more.

Gardening for bees

Today, as part of our topic 'Where would we be without the bee', our Science topic 'Plants' and to celebrate Science week, Year 2 have been extremely busy tidying up the garden planters and planting bee friendly wild flower seeds to encourage a variety of different species of bee to visit our site. We safely used tools to tidy up the plants and get rid of the weeds. We then used the plant waste to make some compost heaps and bug houses to encourage a range of wildlife to visit the garden area. While we were gardening we found lots of worms, wood lice and snails.

Science Workshop - Humans and Animals

To celebrate Science week, Year 2 took part in an 'Animals including Humans' workshop where the children learnt some cool facts about the human body, learnt some names of bones and took part in a circuit of physical activities to explore what actions humans can do. What a fun day we have had! 

Honey tasting experience

Today, as part of our topic 'Where would we be without the bee?' we took part in a honey tasting experience. The children learnt how bees make honey and thet got to taste honey from Greece, Africa, UK and China. The children rated each of the four countries honey from 1-10 (10 being the most delicious) and then wrote a short explanation about why it was their favourite. COOL FACT: Did you know that honey from different parts of the world will taste different as it depends on the plants that the bees gather the nectar from! 

Bee Hotels

Today, as part of our topic 'Where would we be without the bee', our Science topic 'Plants' and to celebrate Science week, Year 2 made Bee hotels to put around the school grounds to provide a suitable nesting place for Bees. We used bamboo sticks, branches, cut them to size and carefully tied them together to create a safe habitat. Great work everyone! 

British Science Week

In 1994 British Science Week began - 30 years ago. Here at Broadbent Fold we are teaching our future inventors and scientists! Keep an eye on the blog for our workshops, experiments, awe and wonder!
