The Phiz Lab is now open and is being used by all year groups.
Keep checking the science pages for updates on the exciting lessons that are being taught in there!
The new building work at Timberley continues and this week we were treated to the official opening of our brand new Phiz Lab. Wendy Cox, of the Ogden Trust, opened the lab with the support of several of the promising young scientist that we have at Timberley Academy. Lots of other members of the Ogden Trust , as well as science leaders from around the country were also present at the opening.
The Lab used to be part of the stairwell and year 4 cloakroom. However, with a bit of vision and forward thinking, the area is now completely transformed. All the resources are openly available for the children to use in their science lessons. The science team have their own news board outside the Phiz Lab and post many excellent, interesting news clips from the world of science.
The Phiz Lab is used by all the children in school and opens up to the extensive outside space and farm. The alpacas are often seen nosing round the corner to see what's being taught! All the children are so excited to be taught in the Phiz Lab and it has been amazing to see how it has further raised the profile of science at school. In the future we are hosting a rockets and dragsters day, with Jenny Watson, for the local schools. Also, gifted and talented days, CPD and many more exciting events are coming up in the future.
