The Angmering Locality Science Fair:
Children from all schools in the Angmering locality took part in a science fair to promote learning in science! All schools held a science week to explore practical science experiments and investigations. St. Wilfrid's School held a science week in January and investigated the following questions:
(Reception/Year One) Selsey Class: How do we predict the weather forecast?
(Year One/Year Two) Pagham Class: Can we make a boat for Pagham bear?
(Year Three/Year Four) Chichester Class: What was the impact of an erupting volcano on Roman life?
(Year Four/Year Five) Hexham Class: Can you make a boat that would carry enough weight for a Viking expedition?
(Year Six) Lindisfarne Class: How do criminals get caught from the seen of a crime?
Six children were chosen to go to The Angmering High School to set up their experiments to show visitors, they had to talk about their experiment, predictions, materials used, questions they asked, what they found out and their results. Invited guests came to see the locality schools working together to promote science and were able to watch the children demonstrating their investigations and in some cases actually taking part too! They were also given a fantastic display of science by the staff at The Angmering School which included blowing up a jelly baby, a fire demonstration and much more! It was an excellent afternoon, enjoyed by all!
Well done to Finlay and Eva from Pagham Class, Nathan and Luca from Hexham Class and Molly and Rowan from Lindisfarne, who were chosen to represent St. Wilfrid's.
