Science  Week

This week the children will be carrying out some very exciting science experiments to celebrate our school science week.

The main focus of the week will be testing different forces. The children are going to make a toy boat and then devise different ways to make to boat move. The children might choose to use wind power in the form of sails and a balloon or a propeller powered by an elastic band!

Once the children have designed and tested their boats they will write up their results and reach a conclusion about which boat worked the best.


The teachers will teach the children playground games and discuss what it means to be a good friend.
