Science Week - EYFS & KS1

Get Investigating!

On  this page you will find videos from the teachers with some ideas of experiments
that you can do at home. 

You could choose one of these, or think of your own question to investigate.

Some of these experiments might need an adult or an older brother or sister to help you, and some are videos that you can watch yourself maybe with an activity to complete afterwards. 

 

Recording your learning

Once you have completed your experiment and answered your question, you need to record what you did. 

You can write, draw, use pictures or photographs, complete one of the sheets at the bottom of the page, or ask someone to make a video of you explaining what you did and found out. 

 

Sharing your learning 

Share what you have done on Tapestry for your teachers to see. Show and Tell this week will be teachers sharing your amazing science work for your friends to see. 

If you would like to be included in our celebration assembly gallery on Friday, ask your parents to email a picture of your work to Mrs McDonnell by Thursday lunchtime deputy@stpeters-leatherhead.surrey.sch.uk
