Science, art, technology and computing education is high on the agenda at St Mary Magdalen’s Primary as can be seen from their work each year to mark British Science Week. Gary McNab explains

British Science Week, which takes place every March, is one of the key dates in the academic year at St Mary Magdalen’s CE Primary School in Lancashire.
This year, our work for the event highlighted areas covering the human digestive system in science, the role British children played in creating the computing and video game industry in technology, structures and design in engineering, representation of pixel art using Hama Beads in art and design and, finally, how art can be seen in different areas of mathematics.

Our week began with the science behind our digestive system. This gives children not only a fun hands-on activity on how the body processes and disposes of food, but also tackles the importance of eating healthy and regular exercise.
