Bright Sparks Science Club Term 2 and 3

Jonathan’s Jungle Roadshow – 21st April 2015

Jonathan, along with his many creatures, came to visit us on Tuesday 21st April. Each class was lucky enough to see and learn about Elsa the Tarantula, who in the light is a bright blue colour. We were so excited to be able to hold the grasshoppers – June and July as well as the Grey Banded King Snake called King Julian.

Hatching in Hedgehogs - 13th – 24th April

This Spring the children witnessed the miracle of new life in Hedgehogs class. Children were able to watch several of the eggs hatch. 9 out of the ten eggs hatched - 3 boy chicks and 6 girl chicks (Bertie, Eggbert, Fluffy, Brownie, Henrietta, Nugget, Yolko, Chicken Licken and the last born – Peggy).  Every class had the chance to cuddle the new chicks and witness them growing over the 2 weeks. Hedgehogs even went outside to watch the chicks race!

LIFE BUS  14th April 2015

On Tuesday 14th April 2015 each class the Life Education Bus came to St Amand’s. Each class had a hands - on experience learning about their body. They even took part in a karaoke concert!

Science Dome

The children had an ‘out of this world’ experience when the Science Dome came to visit St Amand’s! They were shown a realistic projection of the constellations, which appear in our night sky. They left the afternoon enthused about stargazing!
