Science Open Afternoon 2016

Last Friday, SJB welcomed parents and members of the local community for an afternoon of science.

Year 6 took charge of 12 experiments in the hall and many showed great organisational skills and innovation as the afternoon progressed. The boys with the soda water had to really persevere as the raisins, which were supposed to be floating, refused to budge. They quickly filled a larger container and solved the problem without a commotion.

Mr Maher would like to particularly thank the three boys who took charge of the bridge experiment. They had never done this before and explaining the significance of it to younger children was not easy.

Many of our visitors were pleased to see that practical science is at the forefront of our science curriculum.

Many thanks to all who attended and a big thanks to Year 6 for your efforts on the day.
