Young they may be, they are certainly Science researchers in the making. Our three teams of pupils from Primary 4 and Primary 5 did well in this competition, achieving a Gold with Presentation, a Gold Award and a Bronze Award.
They take on the role of a Science Researcher, going through the Science investigative process, as well as the Science Report Writing process. The experience they gain through these processes provided a valuable insight into the life of a researcher.
Our school values of perseverance, respect, integrity, diligence and empathy are clearly demonstrated as the pupils work through the project not giving up when they encounter problems, listening to each other’s views, reporting truthfully the experimental results, seeing the entire project to completion, and showing care and concern for their team members. Lessons as such will certainly see the pupils a long way as they pursue learning and Science.
