Marland Hill Community Primary School

Together we will achieve more!

Science Week

Next week, week commencing 12th November, children at Marland Hill will be undertaking activities for Science Week. During this week your child will be walking to the forest school site, just down the road on Roch Valley Way. They will take part in an outdoor learning session to supplement the class based science session. Your child will need suitable clothing and footwear to be in school all of this week, a waterproof coat, warm jumper, wellies or walking boots. Please can you put wellies/outdoor shoes in a plastic bag with your child’s name clearly labelled. All children will be taking part so this extra footwear is essential as the woods will be very muddy.


On Thursday 15th and Friday 16th November children will be taking part in science workshops. We will be visited by real scientists who will work with the children to do hands on science experiments. We are asking parents to contribute £1 per child to help towards the cost of this visit.


Children may get some science homework next week and we encourage children to bring in examples of science experiments/projects to show their class. There will be prizes for the best ones
