South Wonston Primary School Together, we will nurture, inspire, challenge and achieve

Science Week

During the week of Monday 12th to Friday 16th March we took part in British Science Week by having our very own South Wonston School Science Week.

This began with a bang, or should we say a colour changing pot of water, flying toilet paper and a shrinking egg, as Lightening Lauren from Mad Science presented an assembly to the children! That afternoon all of the children took part in a whole school house event with the theme of ‘Science is fun’. The children worked together, across all year groups on 6 different activities: making slime, watching a volcano erupt, making spinning paper helicopters, spaghetti and marshmallow structures, creating optical illusions and the fantastic bubble snakes. Staff and children had great fun as they explored, investigated and experimented.

Over the rest of the week, as well as taking part in lots of science in class, we were lucky enough to welcome visitors from the Whitchurch Silk Mill, Henry Beaufort, the University of Winchester and 6 nurses linked to the University of Southampton. Several classes also enjoyed talks from many of our parents and carers.

The children had a wonderful week and science was enjoyed by all!
