Science Investigations Year 1

1/12/2016
Science Investigation Afternoon
 The Year 1s put on their science hats this week with a special Science Investigation Afternoon for parents and carers.
Miss Wright’s Year 1 classroom was abuzz with budding scientists as students presented their science unit on ‘Materials’.
The presentation and investigation afternoon gave students and their families the opportunity to take a hands-on approach to Year 1 science studies.
Inquisitive young minds created a series of exciting scenarios featuring an array of different materials under the title ‘My Boat Investigation’.
A ‘clothesline’ of students’ work was pegged to overhead wires in the classroom to show how students put together their interesting scientific creations.
Outside in the school grounds, there were plenty of boats to float and tubs of water to float them in. Some were more successful than others but everyone had a great time putting their theories to the test.
Parents and carers got into the spirit of the afternoon, offering encouragement and a helping hand when needed. All the students agreed the afternoon’s activity was lots of fun.
