To celebrate Science week the children in the Butterflies room welcomed Lisa from ‘Mad about science’. Lisa was very interactive with the children, and the children were all ears as they watched to see what experience they were going to be involved in next.
The room was set up with a wide variety of science experiences, each table offering the children something different that they could experiment with. The children had the choice of exploring the different experiments at their own pace, with the help of Lisa to answer any questions and demonstrate when needed.
The Butterfly children were full of questions when they were looking at the different table experiences, they got excited about new things and especially loved problem solving throughout the morning incursion.
The children also worked in groups to complete set tasks and shared all of the equipment around.
