ENRICHMENT

Our main event of the year is British Science Week which takes place in March each year. Please see the poster below for details of all of the activities which took place in Science Week 2017!

If you are a student at St. Anselm's Catholic School, please give us your feedback about Science Week by clicking here.



Aside from the activities listed above, Year 7 students also took part in a paper aeroplane competition. This involved them designing and constructing their planes during one of their science lessons, and then going head-to-head during Form Time on Friday. Year 8 students were taught about coding and computer programming during one of their science lessons, with students being given a BBC MicroBit to take home. Finally, all Houses took part in a Form Time competition throughout the week culminating in the 'Science Chase' during Form Time on Friday. The winning form groups were 12A, 9B, 2M and 7S, each of whom selected three students to compete in the 'Science Chase'. This involved these three students representing their House and taking on one of the Science Chasers - Miss. Denton, Miss. Hunt, Mr. Withey and Mr. Norton. The winning house will be announced on Friday 31st March!

Do Try This At Home!
The Institute of Physics has produced a range of experiments which you can do at home using common household items. These experiments include bending water, making lava lamps with peanuts and making art using soap. If you try any of these experiment, please take a photo and send it to Mrs. Allen (e.allen@st-anselms.org.uk). She will then make sure that you are issued with an achievement point and you may even have your experiment shared on our social media accounts!

The equipment list and method for these experiments can be found here.

Outreach

Our department is committed to supporting science teaching in primary schools. At St. Anselm’s Catholic School we have a number of Biology, Chemistry and Physics specialists who are happy to visit students in other schools or welcome students in to our school to use one of our science labs. If you would like to discuss this further or would like more information, please email our Outreach Co-ordinator, Mrs. Allen at e.allen@st-anselms.org.uk.

We offer support for non-specialist primary teachers in the form of training in aspects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics from our subject specialist teachers. If you would like to discuss this further or would like more information, please email our Outreach Co-ordinator, Mrs. Allen at e.allen@st-anselms.org.uk.

We can also provide advice on equipment and supplies, especially if you are thinking of buying some new science kit or chemicals. If you would like to discuss this further or would like more information, please email our Senior Technician, Mrs. Palmer at s.palmer@st-anselms.org.uk.

Finally, if you would like to participate in our annual St. Anselm’s Science Challenge which this year will be taking place on Friday 24th February 2017, please email our Outreach Co-ordinator, Mrs. Allen at e.allen@st-anselms.org.uk. This competition involves teams of four Year 5 pupils using a range of forensic and general science methods to solve a mystery before presenting their findings at a special awards ceremony at the end of the day. The winning team will be presented with the challenge trophy.
