Wigmore Primary Science week

British Science Week 2019 will soon be here and this year the theme is ‘Journeys.’ As part of Science week the children are able to enter a poster competition which is being supported by Guinness World Records this year. 

The children can make a poster about anything involving journeys and there are many exciting prizes up for grabs, including a chance to spend a day in the life of the Guinness World Records team at the global headquarters for the winner of the junior category. The 5 best posters from our school will be entered into the UK-wide competition. 

Rules for the competition:

- All entrants must be within the following age categories:

  • Early years (Nursery/Reception)
  • Infant (Year 1 – Year 3)
  • Junior (Year 4 – Year 6)
  • Senior (Year 7 – Year 9)


- Children can enter the competition individually or in teams but will be judged in the category of the oldest member. 

- Entries must be 2D and must be submitted on one side of A4 or A3.

- Work must be original and created by the pupil(s)

– no templates to be used.

- All entries must include the following details:

o First name and age(s) of pupil(s) 

o Age category (of the oldest member)

o School name and address

o Please note, the data submitted will be used for the administration of the competition. First names, ages and schools of students may also be shared on the website and social media pages – if you do not want this data to be shared online you should make this explicitly clear on the back of the entry.

Unfortunately, any posters that are entered into the competition won’t be returned so if you want to keep your poster it is advised that you enter a photograph of it and keep the hard copy.
