10 – Minute Science

10-minute science is hugely popular with all of our children. We teach this in addition to our weekly science lessons. Through our 10-minute experiments, the children have the opportunity to apply the skills learnt in their science lessons such as: observing, asking questions, predicting, gathering and recording data, conducting comparative and fair tests and drawing conclusions.
