As some of you will know, Mrs Wheeler is one of our Science experts in school. She has been experimenting with her boys at home and would like to share some ideas, which you might like to try at home with your grown-ups too!

Dear children,  I have tried these experiments at home and thought you might enjoy them too. Please click on the links below to view the experiments.

Enjoy, go investigate and get exploring!

Most importantly, have fun!

Families, as there is (thankfully) a wealth of resources that can be accessed online to support your children’s learning during these unprecedented times I thought it might be helpful to ‘guide’ you to a few specific websites that may be of interest to you and your children, if you haven’t already found them. These are specific to supporting your child/ren’s Science learning and in further developing their scientific curiosity, awe and wonder about the positive, wonderfulness of the world.
