This year’s Science Week has centred around the theme of ‘Journeys’. The classes across the school began their own expedition by exploring some famous journeys from history. These included researching Sir Francis Drake’s circumnavigation of the globe,  Shackleton’s Trans-Antarctic Expedition and even Yuri Gagarin’s journey to Space! Throughout the week the children have enjoyed an array of scientific tasks, activities and investigations. From investigating circuits and strong structures to classification of rocks and adaptations of living creatures, all of the classes have enjoyed the hands on experiences they have shared. This afternoon we shared an assembly to celebrate all we have achieved which was wonderful to see. We will also be collating some of our work and displaying it in school and on the website, so keep your eyes peeled!  https://www.westfieldsjuniorschool.co.uk/curriculum/science/
