Science Week 2018

Science WeekLooking for ways to celebrate British Science Week 2018? Here at St Mary’s, the children in Key Stages 1 and 2 have been asked to carry out a simple science investigation at home. Your class teacher should have given you instructions to follow or ideas.

If you’re looking for other ideas (or want to do a little something extra), here are some websites that might help:

Looking for an activity that doesn’t require too many resources? Some of the British Science Week website and CREST awards investigations don’t need anything more than items you’d find lying around your house, so why not try one of those?

Be ready to talk about what you get up to! We’re all looking forward to seeing your investigations, or photographs of what you have been doing.

Make sure you ask an adult for help!

Water Issue Closure

Many thanks to all the parents who have come to collect their children early today. Unfortunately, we had no running water, and having liaised with Westminster Local Authority, we decided it would be safer for children to go home if possible. We are grateful to St Mary’s Church for giving us use of their toilets.

The problem has now been fixed by Thames Water and we hope to have water back on in the next hour. School will continue as usual tomorrow.

Thank you for you patience.
