From 11th – 15th March, St. Joseph’s celebrated British Science Week. To kickstart the week, the children had a visitor from FUJIFILM Diosynth (called Mrs Sullivan) who talked to them about how the company make medicines. Mrs Sullivan said, “I hope to help inspire the next generation of scientists.”
Across the week, the children took part in a range of investigations such as making electrical circuits, making volcanoes, making rain clouds in a jar, making lava lamps, stick chain reactions and super bubbles. They also learnt about a range of scientists including Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Galileo Galilei, Carl Linnaeus and Nicolaus Copernicus.
On Thursday 14th March, the Key Stage 2 eco warriors visited J&B Recycling in Hartlepool to see what happens to our household recycling. One of the pupils said, “It was really interesting to see how the things are separated into the different materials. They use magnets and lasers. They also have a hawk called Mia to scare away the seagulls.”
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Sullivan and J&B Recycling for working with us.
