Bellevue Science Collaborative Learning Day

Posted on 23rd May 2018

Edenhurst recently enjoyed hosting and leading a Bellevue Science Collaborative Learning day. This was a day of interactive, enquiry based activities in the style of a workshop.

Together with some of the children from Prep 6 we welcomed children from 3 other Bellevue schools together with their teachers. As part of the collaboration we were also joined for part of the day by one of the physics teachers from Ealing Independent College.

During the day the children were set 2 tasks where they had to use their scientific knowledge and skills to solve problems. The theme was based around aliens and the the pupils had to produce a road that could move objects using force, gravity and kinetic energy. There was lots of fun as the school hall was filled with foam tube roads and runaway marbles, together with a ‘materials shop’ where the children had to work within a budget to buy any materials they needed to complete the task. Even the visiting teachers had a go at building their own rollercoaster road!  

Although the creations and the scientific solutions that the children came up with were excellent, what was really lovely to see was the the great teamwork between different children who had never met before; all of them were a real credit to their schools.
