- About Us
Class 6T loved making their eggs for Crook Primary's annual Easter egg competition.
What a fantastically Day we have had, conquering fears and showing amazing resilience! We survived the Piranha Pool, imagined we were circus artists on the trapeze, canoed, shot some arrows in archery, protected some eggs in an egg flying challenge, climbed up high on in a. Date challenge and on 5e climbing wall and carried out some problem solving in the Knights challenge. Everybody is now In bed ready for our final day tomorrow!
During National Science Week, the children had a fabulous time through exploration and discoveries. Each class were given a challenge from Professor Noah Lott and they presented what they did and their findings to the whole school in our science assembly. From creating an ocean in a bottle in Reception to exploring bug hotels in Year 5 and creating 'astro-nappies' in Year 6, the children enjoyed working together to investigate the world around us.
The winners of the #ScienceSelfie competition won their very own volcano models to explore. The judges liked how Charlie, Abbie and Harriet identified science in action in our everyday lives, and how they were able to explain clearly the science their photo showed.
The children took part in a Science Fair and the three winners of this competition impressed the judges with their excellent scientific knowledge. Tyler created his very own model of the solar system which was made to scale. Harriet carried out an investigation into which boats floated the best. This included a prediction, a clear explanation of what she did, her results and her findings. Caleb investigated why water spins when it drains away in a bath, researched what a vortex is and then made his very own.
To end the week, every class were delighted to take part in workshops with Science Boffin Vicky. These fun, interactive sessions involved visual effects from the film industry with pupils creating Frankenstein-like plasma flashes, making noxious slime and creating their own ice cream.
13 hours of activities tomorrow!
