British Science Week - 14th to 18th March

Dear Parents/Carers,

The week of Monday 14th March, we will be celebrating BRITISH SCIENCE WEEK at Olton. On this week, we’d like to invite you and your child, along with other pupils and staff from our school, to be involved. As a school we’re planning an exciting week of events and activities, one of which is the ‘Gadget Shop’.


Our ‘Gadget Shop’ is an exciting stall, home to the most exciting SCIENTIFIC/ MATHEMATICAL curiosities this side of the moon. It is jam packed with SCIENTIFIC/ MATHEMATICAL gizmos, toys, games and gadgets, all aiming to promote a practical awareness of SCIENCE/MATHS in the real world. What’s more, any profits made from the stall will go back into supporting Science at Olton, with funds towards school resources.


The stall will take place after school outside classes 3L and 3B from 3.15pm from Monday 14th March until Friday 18th March. The gadgets on the stall will range from 50p to £3.00. Should your child wish to buy a curiosity from our school stall, please ensure all monies are brought to school by the adults collecting children from the playground/classes.


We cannot provide facilities for children to securely store their spending money during the school day. Once again, thank you for your ongoing support to our school. It is only with your help that we can continue to provide an excellent education for your child.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs Garner and Mrs Hill
