Science Enrichment

Oaks Primary Year 6 ‘Escape the Lab!’

On Tuesday, Oaks Primary Year 6 visited Science at Sharples and competed against each other to escape our lab of challenging experimental clues with the most time to spare, practising their core skills along the way. Well done to all of the pupils who entered and managed to re-emerge, but particular congratulations to our prize winners below! In the waiting room, the rest of the group were able to enjoy popcorn and drinks while watching our 3D cinema screening exploring space and under the sea.

Animal Care Dog Visit

On Wednesday, our Year 9 and 10 Animal Care students encountered a dog in class, practising how to safely handle, restrain and groom an animal. Students were delighted with Junior (who belongs to Miss Fairhurst) and, as you can see from the photos, he was more than happy with all of the attention he was receiving!

Science Rewards Trip

Last week, a selection of our Year 7 and 8 students visited Salford University for the STEM in Action event with Miss Booth. The students that attended this trip were nominated by their Science teachers for their amazing effort and attitude in lessons this year. We attended lectures on wildlife photography, cryogenics and the Science of swimming the channel. The students were brilliantly behaved, asked academic questions and were a credit to Sharples. Well done everyone!
