CHILDREN at Winslow Combined School have been taking part in a science week linked to the Olympic Games this week.

Every year group has been involved, from Foundation to Year 6.

The school has used elements of existing science units dovetailed with different aspects of the games.

Year 3 children focused on materials and their properties and created their own version of the Olympic rings using a variety of materials, while Year 5s focused on healthy eating and created sculptures of the heart. Both year groups had help from an artist in residence.

Year 4 pupils learned about friction and created a dance routine, led by a dance specialist.

On Monday, parents will have a chance to watch the dance performances and view the work done by the children during science week.
