Science

Ask a Question.
Watch this Oak National assembly with famous scientist Lord Robert Winston. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6e0fZs4-IU
Here, children ask him fascinating questions about Science such as: Where do rainforest animals go at night? How do you get crystals out of the ground? How do you make a vaccine for Covid 19? What makes the sound of thunder?
It is fascinating to listen to!

I know Year 4 are fascinated about Science too! What questions would you like to know about Science? Write them down and then try to find out the answer. You could use some of this website to help.
