Science investigation

 

We enjoy our science lessons, especially when we carry out a science investigation.

We observed the shadows created by our homemade sundial and learnt about the earth's rotation.

Toy boat: What is the best material to use for a toy boat? 

We examined different materials and looked at whether they would be suitable to make a toy boat. We then drew conclusions as to the best material and why it was the best material.
