P7 Links Park Science Trail

Our P7 'Links Park Science Trail' challenges pupils to undertake a range of fun and inspiring tasks. The 'Health and Fitness' workshop investigates the body's response to, and recovery from participation in competitive football. Our 'Forces Trail' looks at different types of footwear and gloves and why footballers select specific types when training and competing. Pupils also have the opportunity as part of this activity to test their running speed... both with and without the unhelpful (but fun) drag of a parachute! The 'Friction Investigation' looks specifically at the role of friction on the football pitch, and in all activities, youngsters assess the important role Science plays in the everyday running of a Professional Football Club.

For a schools perspective on the positive impact such programmes have had on both attainment and achievement in the areas of Health, Numeracy, Literacy and Science, please contact the Head Teacher from one or a number of our 'Partner Schools' above.
