‘SMILE - Stimulating Minds through Imaginative Learning Experiences’

Science

 

Science has changed our lives and it is vital to the world's future prosperity.  At Booth Wood we provide the  high quality Science education which ensures the foundations for understanding the world through the specific scientific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

 

All pupils are taught essential aspects of Science; knowledge, methods, processes and use of science. We encourage pupils to recognise the power of explanation and to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. Pupils are also encouraged to understand how science can be used to predict how things will behave and to analyse causes.

3M Young Innovators Challenge

 

 

Congratulations to a group of Year 5 pupils who took part in the 3M Young Innovators Challenge. They entered the 'Canyon Crossing' challenge and had to design and build a bridge to support 12kg. They had lots of fabulous ideas and did a brilliant presentation to a panel of judges at 3M in Loughborough.

Please see photos below of their presentation / judging.
