Last week at Northampton High we celebrated British Science Week, which centred around the theme of ‘Connections’.
Kicking off a week of fun and learning, Mrs Hodgetts-Tate led a fabulous whole school assembly where students learned about the impact of music on our brain and tried to guess which member of staff connected with the different songs being played!
We were delighted to hold a series of bespoke lectures that our brilliant science teachers hosted during lunchtimes! From learning about ‘Brain Structure and Brain Dissection’ with Mrs Carr, to investigating ‘What is inside a horse?’ with Mrs Hodgetts-Tate, our pupils learned about a whole range of topics and various connections in science. Our interactive science exhibition took over The White Room during the week and featured lots of exciting objects! From skulls and shells to spiders and frogs, visiting this space certainly made for an interesting lunchtime!
In a week filled with enriching activities, we were honoured to be joined by two amazing guest speakers, Dr Emily Grossman and TV presenter Grace Webb. Both of our guests held fascinating sessions and were wonderful inspirations to our pupils! As women in STEM, it was great to hear about their role in the field and to consider different futures in science.
We hope everyone enjoyed the wonderful Science Week celebrations here at Northampton High!
