‘S’ Factor Finale!
This morning, the school came together to see the finalists from our ‘S’ Factor science competition. We are very grateful to governor Bernice Ridley, parent Davina Bhanabhai and chemistry undergraduate Alex Grimshaw for forming our judging panel – great female scientist role models! Many thanks to Croda for most of the prizes.
The class winners each presented their investigation or demonstration to the whole school on the stage, with their work being ‘reflected’ live onto the big screen and their voice amplified – many thanks PTA!
Every participant did very well but the winners were:
Year 6 Saad (charging a phone using a watermelon!)
Year 5 Evie (square bubbles)
Year 4 Megan and brother Jack (the digestive system)
Year 3 Eden (crystals)
Year 2 Paige (Oil and Water)
Year 1 Alfie (ping pong ball and balanced forces)
Reception Tom (balloon rocket)
We had even more prizes for the two overall winners: Tom and Megan
Many thanks to all those that entered, all the judges and especially to Mrs Daniels and Mrs Galbraith for organising the whole thing. Fantastic and inspiring!
