Aim High Believe, Fly High Achieve


The week we have had a whole school 'science week'. In early years we chose to explore the topic of 'Ice'. We talked about what ice is and how it can be made and changed. We investigated how quickly ice melts in a range of environments and talked about why this differs. We found out some information about animals that live in cold, icy places. We then carried out an investigation about how blubber helps animals to keep warm in cold environments.
