Flair Week in the Science Department

Within the Science faculty, there has been an array of amazing activities for flair week, which have allowed for people across all the different year groups to showcase their ‘flair’ and passion for the subject in the way that best suits them and their personal learning preferences, so there’s been something for everyone to get involved in! With this year’s theme being ‘Innovating for the future’, it’s really made us all think more creatively than usual and acknowledge that inspiration can originate from almost anywhere.

One of the many activities that have taken place within the course of the last week is the Poster Competition and this has definitely been a personal favourite of mine. We were given this year’s theme and were then able to branch out in any area we may be fascinated in, which has given the chance to research and find out what has recently been occurring within the scientific community. It’s been really exciting to see what others have come up with.

 

 

Another initiative has been Mrs Razavi’s Burning Questions, which has really brought out a competitive edge from everyone in our lessons. The way it works is that at the start of each lesson, there is a poster containing challenging questions and we have to compete to see who can answer the questions with the best explanation in the shortest amount of time possible.

In Mrs Davey’s lesson, students were doing the centre of mass practical without guidance. They were just given equipment and they had to come up with an experiment to find the center of mass of the object given.

As always, there are also ‘Are you up for the challenge?’ questions scattered around our classroom to stretch us all further in our learning, which we can easily access and complete once we have finished our work in lessons!
