Science week is an annual event at John Betts which encourages the children to think about how the sciences, technology, engineering and maths relate to our everyday lives – whilst having fun.
This is our opportunity to focus on making science creative and to raise its profile, by exploring ideas and investigating scientific concepts.
The week incorporates a variety of trips; workshops which on occasion are hosted by our talented parent body. Mad Science assemblies and a falconry visit are included. Also due to our strong partnership with local schools the children work alongside secondary school science specialists both at John Betts or visiting their well equipped Science labs.
The children are fascinated from start to finish and talk about it for days!
With support from the John Bett’s Community, one of our commitments as a school is to reduce the amount of plastic we use by supporting the ‘No Straw’ campaign. We have also made the decision to only use biodegradable glitter in our school, and are always looking for other ways to reduce our impact on the environment.
In order to support our community and the environment, we appoint eco-warriors from each year group, who meet to discuss innovative ideas and monitor how we, as a school are doing all we can to make a difference.
