Activity Week Programme

Science Whizz!
– New Safe Activities for 2022

This investigate-acular 5-day camp is a science expedition into the unknown and over the week your child will do 40+ science activities, exciting demonstrations, hands-on experiments, team games and fun quizzes – across Chemistry, Biology and Physics!
Every Day includes: 4 indoor classroom-based fun, hands-on science sessions and 3 outdoor ‘Activity Playground Breaks’
Please note: the programme content and order may be subject to minor change.

Day 1: Science Mix!

The scientists are mesmerised by the science behind rainbows by looking through diffraction glasses before making their own take home rainbow paper! They then move on and investigate the science behind the centre of mass and make their own Balancing Robot! We will then look at the science behind rockets before making a balloon propelled rocket! The children then take part in fun, science-based quizzes!
Rainbow Paper! – We take a closer look at light and create our own shimmering, floating rainbows.
Balancing Robot! – We try some tricky balancing challenges, then test our theories with our own balancing robots.
Balloon Zoom! – As a team challenge, we race balloons using our knowledge of jet propulsion.
Super Slime! – Is it a solid or a liquid? Make your own slime and find out!

Day 2: Science Fun!

The Whizzes start off as chemists where they learn about the process of crystallisation before making their own crystal initials to take home! They investigate the power of static electricity and make their own Flapping Static Animal! Staying on the topic of animals, the children are then challenged to make their own 3D Dinosaurs! The children then take part in fun, science-based quizzes!
Crystal Letters! – We examine crystal structures and start a crystal-growing experiment that you can continue at home.
Static Shock! – We learn the shocking truth about electricity and harness it to make a moving animal model.
Dino Discovery! – From Velociraptors to Tyrannosaurus Rex we unearth our favourite dinosaur details and make a 3D Dinosaur model.
The Fun Zone! – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 3: Science Blast!

On this day, the scientists discover the amazing diversity in the Bird World and why diversity is so important! They then look at the surface of the Earth and go deeper to see what is inside. They make their own Earth’s cross section model. We end this day looking at animals on Earth and their food chain. We make a ‘Food Chain Cup Stack’! The children take part in friendly word scrabble and colouring challenges.
Our Diverse Planet – Super Birds! – What is diversity and why is it so vital? We learn about some fantastic birds with amazing adaptations!
Whole Earth! – We take a journey to the centre of the earth, build an earth model, then reveal the hidden layers within.
Food Chain Cup Stack! – What’s for dinner? We look at food chains and nets, and build a stacking chain of our own.
The Fun Zone! – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 4: Science Slam!

The children are launched into a day of science fun where they start off with making their own movie with a simple take home stroboscope! We look more closely at the world of illusions before making a hummingbird spinner. Then we move on to investigate the science behind coloured dyes and make chromatography flowers!
In a Spin! – We take a look at a Victorian toy and discover the link to cartoons and films, then construct an eye-boggling stroboscope.
Hummingbird Spinner! – We trick our eyes again and make a sweet hummingbird spinner to transform a still image into a moving one.
Chromatography Bouquets! – We see chromatography in action and create colourful flowers from just one colour!
The Fun Zone! – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 5: Science Wham!

We end the week by taking a look at the water cycle and making a water cycle model to see the effect of precipitation on Earth! Then we explore taxonomy, or how to sort animals. There are 5 different groups and we will investigate them all. Then we look at our Fantastic Flying Fish – is it a bird, is it a fish, no it’s neither, it’s a plane!
Rain, Rain Go Away! – We show how all the water on earth is part of a great, big cycle and build a mini water cycle to observe precipitation – that’s rain!
MR FABI! – Animals can be classified into 5 groups – MR FAB has a taxonomy challenge for us to complete!
Flying Fish! – Is it a bird or a fish? No, it’s a plane! We investigate if a plane really needs wings to fly.
The Fun Zone! – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Remember – you as Parents will also receive a TOP SECRET Handout that tells you:
