Science fair

This term our Inquiry unit is based around ‘Science Fair’. Each child must complete a science fair investigation and present it in week 10 (which they will be assessed on). Instead of doing individual experiments, Room 3 will be completing their science fair investigations in groups. Each group has chosen a fair test experiment to do based on the demonstrations we’ve done in class throughout the term. All students have divided the equipment that they will need amongst themselves, so that each person in the group will be responsible to bring 1 or 2 items to school on Wednesday. This is a whole school Inquiry focus and each student will be assessed on their science fair investigation.
