Aveley Primary Science Club


Another fun and engaging Science club activity this week at Aveley Primary School. OPA Science teacher Miss Chan, and Science technician Patsy Martin, were supported by some of our wonderful Science Ambassadors. Lots of fun was had by all and students learned how thermal energy can cause pressure changes in a container.

Students at OPA are completing some work around finding information about the best playing surfaces for sports in our community. The students hope to use this data to inform us whether we can make an application for a new surface to be installed at OPA for use by all members of our community at the evenings and weekends, helping sporting activities and clubs to grow in Thurrock. The survey will be open for the next two weeks, closing on Wednesday 27th March. We look forward to getting your responses. Many thanks, Survey link:
