The children had great fun on Monday on Science Day and everyone spent time working Scientifically. They were grouped with children from every class so they had to work in mixed ages rotating around all four classes. This always brings out the best in our children and I observed older children supporting and helping younger ones, buddies confidently leading and Class 3 and 4 children letting younger children ‘go first’ or encouraging them to have a go. Throughout the day, children explored scientific processes – they were conducting tests around gingerbread men – how to help them float, help them parachute or help them with a problem. They had to predict, test, compare, conclude and construct a fair test which they did to successfully answer their question!
