St Clare's Science Ambassadors

 

This year, we are extremely lucky to have 8 children from year 5 who are representing our school as science ambassadors. Their role involves participating in the science teaching and learning around the school, as well as; 

  • attending meetings to discuss how to improve science in our school

  • helping to plan exciting science events

  • delivering presentations, shows or assemblies about science

  • supporting younger children in their science lessons

  • looking after the science equipment and resources in the school

  • helping to engage families in science events and challenges

  • reporting on the latest science in the news

  • attending science events at other schools and locations

Our Ambassadors have a brilliant year ahead of them and we look forward to sharing our learning here with you. 

 

Trip to Chester Zoo

As part of our World Animal day learning, the science ambassadors were invited along to Chester Zoo for a fun, educational visit to learn more about endangered animals and the conservation work the zoo does to save the endangered species around the world. they had such a fantastic day, and learned so much about their favourite animals! They were such great role models for the science that goes on at St Clare's!

Planting Bulbs

St Clare’s RC Primary plant 600 flower bulbs in their school ground and forest school area

Science Ambassadors, and children in the year 4 classes flower bulbs in their forest school, and in the flower beds around the yards. These flower bulbs were given to them by Bulbs4Kids, a programme that is allowing the class to become familiar with flower bulbs and the world of nature in way that is also a lot of fun. When the tulips, crocuses, daffodils and grape hyacinths start blooming early in the spring, this school garden will be bursting with colour.

The flower bulb kit
Mrs Salza signed up last spring to receive a flower bulb kit. This means that our classes, just as 399 classes in England, 450 classes in the Netherlands, 800 classes in Germany, 350 classes in France, 150 classes in Canada and 100 classes in Sweden will be participating in the Bulbs4Kids project. Since each kit contains 600 flower bulbs, more than 1.3 million flower bulbs will be planted in school gardens. To make planting flower bulbs even more exciting, the Bulbs4Kids programme also includes a competition. The grand prize is the 2022 Golden Flower Bulb for the winning class. More information is available at www.bulbs4kids.com.

 

Science Ambassadors judge the selfie competition entries

Thank you to everybody who has entered the science selfie competition based on climate change, the entries looked amazing and were so hard to choose winners. The ambassadors have worked fairly and chosen a 3rd, 2nd and 1st place to award prizes to. They will be revealed during this week's assembly. Thank you again for all of the entries!
