Image of British Science Week 2022!

This week has seen Fairfield become scientists! To celebrate British Science Week, the whole school have carried-out an investigation linked to this year’s theme ‘growth’. Their challenge was to investigate... Can a gummy bear grow? 

Pupils from Nursery to Year 6 have been developing their working scientifically skills by: making predictions, setting-up tests, observing and measuring (using equipment) and recording the results.  

On Monday, there were lots of discussions and hypotheses created as the challenge was announced. Throughout the week, there has been a real 'buzz' around the school as children have observed closely, with anticipation, waiting to discover which class could grow the biggest gummy bear..

The results were recorded today and celebrated in assembly; a huge well done to 4CT, who successful grew a gummy bear measuring 5.1cm.
