Science Week at NPS

Science Week 2019 has been a blast!

The whole school has enjoyed focusing on the theme of ‘Journeys’. Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 all enjoyed individual workshops with our visiting Secret Science Agent UU7 which ranged from making slime to flying helicopters, and everything in between! Year 3 and 4 benefited from workshops led by Newcastle University students exploring how to ‘Think like a scientist’. Year 5 had a wonderful time at the Discovery Museum investigating the ‘Science of circus skills’ and journeys into space, and Year 6 had the opportunity to meet a broad range of different companies at their STEAM careers fair.

All in all, a fantastic week highlighting how many brilliant Scientists we have at NPS!
