This term we are going to introduce the children to zoology and then space science.
In zoology the children will do an observation of a live animal, investigate birds and their beaks, dissect a chicken wing (for health and safety reasons it will be cooked in advance ) and a number of experiments relating to bees.
In space Science they will learn about the relative size of the planets and the relative distances between them. We will study the moon, its orbit, its effect on the tides. We will make space food. We will consider the challenges for colonising Mars and see if we can grow plants in a carbon dioxide environment.

Please let us know about allergies, educational and dietary needs. We dont feed the children but often we use food items in our experiments as for most they are safe materials to work with. If there is a child with an allergy in the group then we replace the allergen with another material or in some cases replace the entire activity.

We want everyone to enjoy science so if your child has any additional needs please do let us know so we can do our best to create a comfortable environment for everyone.
