In Science this term we are excited to have an opportunity to work with Empiribox, a new scheme of work for Science. We will be focusing on forces and magnets during Autumn term. Empiribox believes the only way to learn science is with fun and exciting practical experiments, inspiring children throughout their lives. These experiments are carefully chosen to explore fundamental science concepts, whilst enthralling the children.
