British Science Week

On Monday 14th March, Year 6 took part in the British Science Week. They were set the task of researching, building and evaluating nests for Gentoo penguins. They had a great day and the results of their investigation were brilliant; they produced some extremely robust nests! Once they had collected their materials and built their nests (after some very careful planning) each design was tested to see how well it would withstand the elements of wind and rain (simulated by a hairdryer and watering can).
