Book Prize Continued…
As we mentioned in the last blog we have decided our nomination for the winner of the Royal Society book prize. In the safe hands of our junior librarians (Zac and Kiri), the shortlisted books have been unleashed into the wilderness of Gillespie School library where they will be found and read by the inhabitants of the world of books (just to be clear, the children of Gillespie School).
Nuclear fusion coming soon?
MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) are trying to find a way to carry out nuclear fusion, which is accelerating particles together and making them combine, to make safe nuclear power (not destroying the world with climate change). They also broke the record for the hottest temperature ever recorded during nuclear fusion: 35 million degrees C. That is 6364 times hotter than the Sun. All rounded up, the temperature is very hot!
History is coming back to us!
We are announcing a competition for Black History Month! Any child from Y4-6 in Gillespie Primary School can enter. They have to research and draw and write facts about a Black scientist or inventor. They don’t have to be famous and they don’t have to be alive. But they have to be real. We will decide what the prize will be. We are looking forward to meeting your drawings.
