In return, all we ask is for you or your family to share either:  


a ‘Science Selfie‘- (a picture of you doing science)


a ‘Science Snapshot’ - (a short video of an experiment you try)                   







These can be shared on either:

  • Class/Year Seesaw pages
  • Twitter – Tag@BeecroftGdn and use our hashtag #beecroftscienceweek
  • Email -



Whole School Science Investigation Question:


  • What do you predict?
  • Will you plan what you are going to do?
  • Who will be your sample people that you test the question on?
  • How will you test it? How will your record your results?
  • What will be the best way to share what you did and found out?



We are so excited about science week online and I hope you are too. Show us what you get up to. Parents please get involved as this develops fantastic scientific talk and this question works across children of all ages. 



1. Please support your children when conducting experiments. Tasks may involve them using tools or resources which could cause harmful if used incorrectly. Adult supervision is advised. 

2. Please indicate when sharing work if you are NOT WILLING for any images recordings shared.       



Next follow more ideas from websites to booklets. Enjoy.  There are lots more ideas listed which you could try.
