Here at Lady Boswell’s we are passionate about Science!
Our children are involved in scientific investigation in many ways both linked to the curriculum and in extra-curricular projects. For details of our Science Curriculum, please see Children/Curriculum/Science, and your child’s Class Page for their Year group curriculum.
In Key Stage 2, a number of children each year are appointed as “Science Ambassadors”. Their role, together with our Science Subject Leader, Miss Johnson, is to promote science throughout the School.
We have, amongst other things, a lunchtime Science Club, hold science-based assemblies and run science competitions.
On this page, we look forward to keeping you up-to-date with our “Science News” …

Monday 22nd January 2018 – ‘Fishkeeper Fry’
We are extremely lucky, and excited, to be a part of the primary ‘Fishkeeper Fry’ project, led by Maidenhead aquatics. We have been donated a brand new fish tank and associated equipment ready to embark on our fishkeeping journey. Positioned in the KS2 corridor, all the children are able to see the key steps in how to set up and maintain a successful fish tank for tropical fish. However, Miss Johnson’s year two science club (terms 3-4) are going to be our main Fish keepers, and take the lead in setting up and learning all the important information and processes Fishkeeping involves! Their hard work will be displayed in the school science area – do ensure to have a look when you are passing our new swimming friends!
Smash29 November 17
WedneYear 2 had an eggs-ellent time doing their Egg Drop Challenge as part of a special Science Day. In coming up with a design to protect their (unboiled) egg, they needed to think about the relative merits / uses of various materials.
The chThe challenge also instigated a discussion of 'fair test' conditions and the children had to take into account those variables which th they they could not control, including differences in the thickness of the egg shells and sudden gusts of wind! It was great fun and they decidedecided NOT to have scrambled egg for lunch. Our thanks to parents and carers for sending in everything from pillows to loaves of bread!
