Celebrating British Science Week


In celebration of British Science Week, pupils have got stuck into loads of fun activities and demos this week, courtesy of our Science department! Here’s a roundup of these activities….

  • Microscopes – guess what’s under the microscope
  • Remote controlled toys – hex bugs/flying UFO – an explanation of how infrared works and how this can be used to determine Earth temperatures
  • Magnetic track – used to explain Earth’s magnetic field
  • Density tower – used to think about how different density is relevant to the real world: oil spills, ships and submarines
  • Rainbow fizz – a demonstration of how we use neutralisation in the real world
  • Energy sticks – an explanation of how electricity works and how it’s used in our homes
  • Launching rockets – looking at forces and pressure
Pupils were also asked to create a Tweet about their favourite scientific invention or discovery in a ‘best thing since sliced bread’ competition, with prizes awarded for the most unusual, thoughtful, detailed and creative entries!​

….All in the name of Science!

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
