British Science Week - Engaging the wider school community.
We were awarded a grant by the British Science Association to help us to include our wider school community in raising the profile of science at our school. KS2 enjoyed watching 'The Science of Magic', a show by Science Oxford, with their parents to end our British Science week celebrations. Although the show was great fun, the most important message to take away was to keep asking questions. We really encourage our children to be curious and engage in asking 'Big Questions'. It is our aim to raise the science capital of our children by maintaining interest and engagement in both school and home life. Children with a higher science capital tend to feel that places like Science museums and careers in STEM subjects can be 'for them' and are more likely to pursue science in later life, either through work or as a hobby.
