Whyteleafe Science Fair

Whyteleafe Science Fair – Tuesday 5th February 2019

 

We would like to invite all of the children from Year 1 to Year 6 to enter our Whyteleafe Science Fair! Our last few Science Fairs have been a huge success. The Science Fair will allow children to research an area of science they find particularly intriguing or fascinating and produce a project to show off what they have found out. There are some changes to the Fair this year, there are 8 options for the projects, the first 6 options are selecting one question from the given list (shown on the back of the letter), the 7th option is researching a scientist and the 8th option is to create your own scientific investigative question. Please select one option.

The entry to the Science Fair must include a display including their scientific question as well as a write up of how they found the answer plus graphs and tables to support their findings. Some layout ideas are shown below:

 

 

 

The children can also produce handouts or extras to go with their entry if they wish. Their entries will be due in on Monday 4th February 2019 and they will be displayed in school hall ready for the fair on Tuesday 5th February 2019 where each class will get an opportunity to view all the projects. The fair will also be open, in the hall, after school until 3.45pm for adults to come and see the amazing projects.

A KS1 and a KS2 winner will be selected. The lucky winners and 15 runners up will then be invited to the GLF Science Fair Grand Final at The Royal Holloway University on Monday 1st April, where an overall GLF Scientist of the Year will be selected! We are aware year 6 are away at the Isle of Wight for the final, however their projects will still be taken if they are a finalist. There will also be a celebration at school. This is a great opportunity for children to develop their independence and scientific understanding.

We look forward to seeing their fantastic entries.

 

Miss Alphonso and the Science Leaders.
