During British Science Week, students in all year groups were challenged with the exciting task of completing a Science-themed escape room! Each year group had a different theme, relating to their current topics in their Science curriculum. Students had to work together in small groups, to read and decipher the clues which were hidden all around the playground. They had to problem-solve and try to answer each question, which would lead them further towards escaping the imagined situation.
In Year 3, the escape room was related to their topic on the Human Body including questions pertaining to the skeleton and muscles and how they were essential to support and protect humans, alongside helping us to move!
In Year 4, students were completing an ‘Escape the Safari Park’ themed escape room, which was exploring their topic of Living things and their habitats, identifying different animals, vertebrates and invertebrates, and then using classification keys to label different animals and what habitat they might be best suited for.
In Year 5 students were stuck in high-tech kitchen that needed an access code to override the locks! Students used their knowledge gained from their Materials and Properties topic, to help them figure out the clues and successfully escape the room.
In Year 6 the students completed an ‘Escape the Museum’ escape room, which focused on the topic of Evolution & Inheritance in their Science Curriculum. The escape room questions focused on Charles Darwin, adaptive traits, inherited characteristics, survival of the fittest and fossilisation.
