Gillespie news: Epic Family Space Night | lab13network

Epic Family Space Night

It will be epic and the theme will be space.

It will be on Tuesday 5th December after school. We’re inviting children and families from our school. We want them to learn more about space and the wonders of the universe. We would also love it if children from the old committees or who used to go to Gillespie can come as well. We are also inviting teachers from other schools and their science committees so they can learn more about the committee and inspire their children to learn about science.

If you can come, you can expect workshops about space and art, and…

ORIGAMI

This morning we had a go at making origami, which is the art of folding paper. We love origami because it helps you practice following instructions, estimating distances, creating shapes, using symmetry and it helps your fingers gain more control. This is useful preparation for jobs like engineering, which is good for Adnan for example because he wants to be an engineer. And it is also helpful for Mina because she wants to become a surgeon. It was really hard but we still persevered and we got there in the end. Adnan has decided to take the space shuttle instructions home to try…

Irchester News: Coffee Morning Science and Thinktank! | lab13network

 

On Friday the 24th of September, it was the 2017 Macmillan coffee morning, where we invited all the parents into school to buy cakes to support Macmillan. Every year group performed a song which they had been learning for about 2 weeks. LAB_13 did experiments to do with our senses with the parents, while they were waiting for the next year group to sing. We think the parents found our experiments really interesting, and they bought lots and lots of cake, raising over £700 pounds for Macmillan!

For one of the experiments we tested skittles and mints. We asked the grownups to…

Gillespie news: science cinema! | lab13network

Hi, this is Inigo and Maya, and we are part of the new committee at Gillespie. We joined the committee because we love science!!!

We are bringing to you news of our science cinema. This special screening is happening in Lab_13 on Monday lunchtimes and the movie we are watching in 4 parts is… Hidden Figures! It is open to all of you at Gillespie in Y5 and Y6. And we know it’s annoying for you who are not at Gillespie, but we can’t fit everyone in the lab! We know you want to be healthy so we have grapes and carrots as snacks. And you know what everyone likes to eat when watching a movie?…
