From little acorns... budding scientists grow!

Funding from sponsors enabled two infant schools to hold science workshops last week for their Year 1 and 2 pupils to encourage enquiry skills.

Farncombe Infant School chose Floating and Sinking for Year 1 children, in which they explored the different properties of materials.  Year 2 were introduced to the concept of gravity and made simple parachutes to test how objects can be slowed down. In total, 80 children took part and the event was kindly funded by Cllr Steve Cosser.  One pupil commented...
Science is fun and exciting!

Thorpe Infant
pupils experimented with pneumatics in a creative way - dragons was the theme!  Using a variety of everyday objects the children designed and built an array of awesome creatures with moving parts.  60 children enjoyed learning about science in this fun way. Our thanks go to the CP Charitable Trust, which sponsored this event.
