Term 2 Inquiry

Have you ever thought about how things move? Did you know we use SCIENCE everyday for normal activities? Things like opening a tin of milo, driving to school, playing on the swings, and turning door handles all use SCIENCE!

This term at school we will be exploring how we use science to help us in our lives. Feel like getting a jump start on our learning? Here is a link to a great activity you can explore at home with Mum or Dad.
