Science

Our year 6 Science leaders continue to do a fantastic job of looking after the school tortoises, Squirt and Trevor. They feed them each day, change their water and even give them the occasional bath! This helpful duo are an asset to our school and continue to be a great help to Mrs Hacking and Mrs Ruane. Well done!
Our team of scientists had a brilliant time taking part in some practical and slightly messy activities! Some members of the group worked together to make gooey, scented slime whilst the budding archaeologists of the group used their excavation skills to dig up some buried treasure! 
St. Cuthbert's now has four new Science leaders and we are very proud of the work they have already done. Last week we voted for the animal we would like to have in school. The Science leaders announced the 'winning' animal in today's assembly. It's a tortoise! We will welcome our new addition to the school after February half term.
Science Progression of Skills
 
Our year 5 Science leaders continue to do a brilliant job of watering all of the inside plants kept in The Science Lab. They are prompt, sensible and are great role-models to their peers. After Mrs Hacking and 'The Green Team' have planted bulbs in the forest school area, the Science leaders will take on the role of watering the planters so that we have some beautiful flowers growing in the springtime. Well done boys!
