Celebrating Science - Exploration and Discovery! - posted 19th Mar

Fir Vale School celebrated School Science Week 2018.  To add some fun to the week our theme was: “Exploration and Discovery!”
Pupils enjoyed participating in a wide range of activities based around science, curiosity, exploration, investigation and teamwork including:
  • producing 3D glasses to watch a space show;
  • designing and making pencil rockets to land on Mars (some pupils got closer than NASA!);
  • name the Scientist competition;
  • the launch of our new STEM club;
  • investigating the science of bubbles and compressed air rockets with pupils from Hucklow primary school; and
  • Year 10 pupils won the "Best Innovation Award" at a city wide science competition: pupils designed a space 
    hotel and presented their ideas in Spanish to Language students from Sheffield University.
Dr Rehman, Director of Learning for Science said: 
It has been a pleasure to see the sense of enquiry, curiosity and genuine interest in Science week at Fir Vale School this week. 
We are committed to providing pupils with many opportunities to investigate and explore science and scientific concepts.
A solid base of science learning is excellent preparation for developing transferable skills and employment."

Science learning is a real strength of Fir Vale and for the last three years science results have been in the top national 15%.
