SPECIAL HOME LEARNING DURING COVID-19
SCIENCE HOME LEARNING
The school will still be participating in the British Science Association Poster Competition. The theme of the poster competition is 'Our Diverse Planet'. Children are encouraged to think about the theme scientifically and creatively.
Some children have already completed their posters and handed them in to the school. These have been received and will be considered.
If you have not completed your poster or would like to complete another, then please work on one at home and send completed work to the school. Your entry can be submitted via post or email email@example.com (scan or clear photograph). Please title your email 'Science Poster Competition'.
All entries must be submitted by Monday 30th March.
Five winners from St Peter's Eaton Square Primary School will be chosen. The school will then submit these entries to the British Science Association. Each school is only allowed to submit a maximum of 5 entries. Pictures of the winning posters will be posted on the school website.
Please see attached PDF document below, which contains information about rules, prizes and how entries will be judged.
We look forward to receiving your entries!

You may also wish to scrutinise the planning overviews to see the areas each year group study over the year.

It can be overwhelming for parents if they are not sure what to do with their children. However, there is a useful Parent Hub and Parent User Guide that makes the site easier to navigate and has activities that parents and chn can do at home.
