Science afternoon!

Wednesday, 18 June 2014

Today, key stage 2 spent the afternoon learning and practicing their science skills. All the children were mixed up and rotated around the different classrooms carrying out different science experiments. The children looked like they thoroughly enjoyed it, especially in Mrs Pollards class whereby children were experimenting with chocolate! And I believe were able to eat some at the end!
