We had a fun week during British Science Week. We made our own sensory bottles to explore, planted cress seeds, made a rainbow using skittles and so much more! We have lots of plants and seeds that you have kindly donated and will be planting these in our outdoor area over the next few weeks. Thank you so much for your donations.
