Science

 

The aims of science is to encourage children to develop inquiring minds and curiosity about science and the natural world. This is done in a practical way as often as possible. The children develop the skills of scientific inquiry to design and carry out scientific investigations and evaluate scientific evidence to draw conclusions.

Whole school Science investigation. Every class was given the challenge of making a boat that would float and to find the maximum number of 'passengers' it could hold.
