The Reception classroom was transformed into a Science laboratory last week when the children completed a practical Science experiment. Using a variety of scientific equipment to develop their wider thinking skills, they had great fun whilst developing problem-solving procedures and learning what a scientist does. Wearing ‘lab coats’ and safety goggles and using their senses, the children began to use scientific vocabulary whilst looking through magnifying glasses to build on their sense of inquiry. With learning partners, the children predicted what may happen and why, improved practical skills such as pouring and measuring, and developed scientific terminology through discussion. Have a look at our little Norfolk House School Scientists in the making!
