British Science Week 2015

CMS BSW 2015 2We are really looking forward to all of the events that we have planned for British Science Week 2015.

The majority of the events for this year take place on Friday the 13th of March but with so much to pack into just one day, we have had to include some satellite events that fall either side of our big day.

Many thanks to all of the parents that have provided us with links for site visits or have offered to come in themselves to deliver a session on Friday the 13th.

Please check the newsletter and school website to see how all of the events for every year group went.

Please get in touch with Miss Edwards if you are available to help on the Alnwick Garden or Komatsu visit with year 7 or Great North Museum visit with year 5.
