Science Club is run by Mrs McKenna and is open to the children in KS2. There are a number of things that we aim to do to uphold our Principles of Science. We do this by having fun and sharing our learning through:
Cuerden Church School’s
Principles of Science
Science in our school is successful when …
It is engaging and exciting.
We learn and use the right vocabulary so that we can explain what we mean.
We have lots of practical activities and the opportunity to investigate ideas for ourselves.
We have time to reflect and share what we have learning in a variety of ways.
Lessons reflect what we are interested in and things that are currently going on in the world.
We use our outdoor areas to enhance our learning.
Science is linked to other areas of the curriculum and that we have the chance to use cross-curricular skills in our science learning.
We use modern technology to help us learn, such as research technology and microscopes.
We find out how science is used in everyday life so that we can see how our learning links to the real world.
We go on regular visits and welcome visitors into school, as well as being involved in our local community.

Science Club News - Summer Term
We have had a lot of fun this year in Science Club. We began the year by planning what we would like to do. We particularly enjoyed STEM challenges, like making bridges and boats. We also enjoyed exploring different materials and occasionally getting a bit messy! We have worked outside and even got a bit wet. Fundraising was something we were keen to do this year. We held a Christmas crafts sale to raise money for the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal, as well as holding a Science Fair which raised £17.85 for the Friends’ Association. This club is super fun and we are looking forward to coming again next year!
Christmas Sale update!
As of Tuesday 19th December, the Science Club had raised £56.00! This money will be donated to The Salvation Army Christmas Appeal. Thank you to all who supported!
Thank you to all who came to our Science Fair. It was lovely to get the chance to show you what we have been up to all year!
Guess the flavour answers:
Red - lemon
Yellow - peach
Green - strawberry
Blue - orange
Well done to all who guessed!
22nd November 2016 - more adventures with oobleck!
The older members of science club have been showing the new members about oobleck, which is one of our favourite activities. Today, we took a step further and tried to work out how much water and how much cornflour would create the perfect mixture.
We think the perfect mixture would be two parts of cornflour with one part of water. Why not try it out and see if we are right?
Warning from Liam - be careful! This can get messy!
21st June 2016 - Oobleck!
Today, the older members of Science Club shared a 'Mystery Material' with the younger children. This is what they found out.
Oobleck is a mixture of cornflour and water. For more information, take a look at these websites that we found.
