Through the use of inspiring resources and outstanding teaching, the children have learnt so much about all of their science topics.
We just wanted to share with you a snippet of what science at Heronsgate looks like.
This year we also held inter-year group tournaments for KS2 classes, Y3 and 5 battled for the title of Benchball Champions and Y4 Rounders champions. Children across the school showed massive amounts of talent, sportsmanship and teamwork.
We finished off the week with a Healthy Living bake off, in which classes were given the challenge to come up with a healthy twist on a tasty snack, we saw everything from Avocado brownies to strawberry cheesecake balls! All bakes were on offer at the Summer Fayre and helped raise lots of money! A fantastic, active week was had by all!

Special thanks to the Year 5 and 6 children who helped out on sports day, helping other children and doing a lot of extra leg work!
Competing against 22 other schools, Jenny, Tamim and Sonia showed astounding fluency in mental maths and beat off stiff competition to make it through to the final.
After a tense last round, they finished in Silver medal place!
A fantastic achievement all round! Special thanks to Miss Horne for running the ’24’ club and nurturing our talented mathematicians.
In KS1, activities ranged from monster measurements to building strong, tall towers with spaghetti and marshmallows. In Lower KS2, the children created symmetrical dance patterns – which included rotations – and investigated the different ways that invisible ink can be uncovered. In Upper KS2, investigations included working out how many handshakes would be given at a party, to exploring which ingredients could be mixed to give the best chemical reaction to launch a rocket!
At the end of day, Maths and Science Leaders for each class were announced. These children will act as ambassadors for their subject over the coming year, helping to lead on a range of exciting Maths and Science opportunities across the school.
