Science Week: 9th March 2020
During the week, the children took part in different science activities. The theme for the week was diversity. The children grouped animals into different categories identifying similarities and differences between them. On Thursday, we walked around school looking for vertebrates. We found many in dark, damp places and often buried under leaves. We used this information to build bug hotels in forest school.
We also explored the concept of floating and sinking. The children were set the challenge to see if they could make their bluetak float.
