Science Week 13 March – 17 March 2017

March 31st, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Science week was busy at Oakdale with every year group carrying out a range of exciting activities.  There were also lunchtime clubs for Year 6 and playground demonstrations.  The week finished with a bang with the Science Fair (which Mrs Hallybone has already posted a slideshow about)

Well done to all the poster competition entrants – I have sent all the entries off to the national competition – watch this space!  The school winners were: Maceo in 4J, Karis and Malaicha in 4J and Amy in 4D.  Your posters were voted the best by the parents, staff and other children at the school!

Also well done to Ella from 3D who managed to pick up 44 paperclips in one single strand using a magnetised paperclip attached to a magnet and no fingers!  Amazing.

Enjoy the slideshow below showing some of what we got up to during our Science week.

I was so glad to see so many people involved and enjoying science….
