To help support your child's science learning and encourage them to practise their scientific skills at home, why not try one of the home learning investigations below.
Each investigation is fun and easy to do at home and doesn't take much organisation. If you decide to try one out Mrs Marshall would love to see any photos you might take.
We hope you enjoy investigating!
St Martin at Shouldham has been invaded by a family of science snakes!
They love doing experiments and investigations! They have decided to help each class learn about science and conduct science investigations. Every child will have the chance to take a snake home at least once through out the school year.
