Good morning Westacre.
I hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday and managed to enjoy the sunshine as well as some chocolate.
At Westacre we love to learn no matter where we are, as we are not in school at the moment I thought this would be an ideal time to challenge ourselves by taking Science out of the Science lab.
As I'm sure you know, Mrs Bennett LOVES Science and one of her favourite 'elements' is investigations! Every two weeks I will put a new investigation on here that you and your family can try at home. The investigations can be conducted in your home or garden and have a step by step guide for you to follow. Don't worry, most of the items needed will probably be in your cupboards at home so no need to go shopping either.
Please ask an adult to send any photographs of you conducting your investigation to the school office and they may even appear on this page or our Twitter page.
Famous and performing Science! What could be better than that?

Introducing our Year 7 Science Council for 2019-2020
We are an enthusiastic and lively group of year 7 Scientists with a passion for Science and a curiosity about the world around us. We all love to explore and find out new things and will use our Scientific knowledge to educate others at Westacre about just how fun and exciting Science can be!
Our intention is to support all year groups; by having an understanding of the topics taught at our school and a clear understanding of how the Science Lab is run efficiently you can feel sure that help is always at hand when needed. Please ask one of us if you need help with your Science homework or want to find a Science book in the school library (there are some amazing ones)
We are very easy to spot, just look our for the 'Science Council' lanyards proudly worn around our necks or find us in the Science lab on Wednesday lunchtimes with Mrs Bennett making Science happen!
As Westacre Scientists we:
What makes us good Scientists?
To be a successful Scientist you need to have 6 main skills:
1. Observe and infer
5. Classify and record
At Westacre we believe you can achieve this success by regularly practising these skills in your Science lessons and combining this with our 6R learning values.
If you have these skills and a love for Science maybe you could be on next years Science Council.
Ask Mrs Bennett or one of the Science Council members for an application form.
