Science WOW day
We listened to lots of scientific visitors today; which one would you like to be when you're older?
Following on from the fabulous science Wow last week, we asked the children to try a science experiment at home. They have been asked to come in and explain the experiment to the rest of the Class. This experiment is a home made lava lamp.
