Science week is a celebration of all things science related and a week to show our students that science can be fun and a viable career path when they grow older.
Throughout the week, the teachers taught some of their lessons with the theme of science in mind. Some of the lessons included biographies on famous scientists, debates on science themes, and research projects about scientists.
Throughout the entire week, the students collected paper for a recycling contest. The class with the most amount of paper recycled won a certificate at the end of the week. All the students had a special science lesson in laboratory where was performed a fun experiment as oxygen and fire, water tension and density, etc. Also throughout the week Year 6 to Year 8 students had an opportunity to participate in a water rocket building contest. The students learned about the physics of how a rocket works and how to build one.
The University of Cambridge has over 100 libraries. The central library alone (the Cambridge University library, or the ‘UL’) has approximately 8 million volumes, and is able to request a free copy of every book published in the UK and Ireland.
One book in the CIS Festivalnaya library that I recommend is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.

A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition.
