How best can you support your children in Science outside of school?
Children are naturally curious, science fosters a healthy curiosity in children about our universe and promotes respect for the living and non-living. Working Scientifically skills include: using equipment, conducting experiments, building arguments and explaining concepts confidently, asking questions and being curious about their surroundings.
We will be providing weekly science activities in our weekly plans but with the weather as it is we encourage you to go outside and explore the world around you.
