Science Club trip to OrganicLea in Chingford.
The science club had an interesting afternoon on July 13th, where they learnt many important facts about biodiversity and substainabily.
Some information from the company:
The freshest, tastiest, sustainably grown fruit and veg – from £5 per week. In your budget and in your neighbourhood!
Our scheme is incredibly local – much of the produce comes from Organiclea’s growing site in Chingford. Regularly, we are supplied by our “Cropshare” scheme of local gardeners and allotment holders who supply their surplus – from lettuces picked that morning from an allotment in Leyton, or plums from a Walthamstow garden. And the rest? It comes directly from small-scale organic farmers in East Anglia, Kent and their cooperative partners in Europe: and we tell you every week the exact origin of your produce.
The majority of produce is harvested and packed into your bags within 24 hours, we find this improves flavour and that produce stays fresh longer.
Science Fair at Chingford Foundation
On Monday July 3rd our y5 children visited a science fair at Chingford Foundation. Their y9 and sixth form ambassadors shared lots of scientific knowledge on electricity, human body and looked at finger prints, bones how the heart works. They all had a lot of fun while they were learning so much.
On Friday 20th May, the children took part in our annual Science Challenge Day. We began the day with an exciting assembly, where science boffins Angela and Tanya demonstrated some clever science experiments. The school also received a very special visit from the Mayor of Waltham Forest. Throughout the day all the children took part in lots of different workshops including making slime, ice cream and building spaghetti and marshmallow towers! A fantastic day was had by all! We can’t wait until Science Day 2017!
