Science investigating!

In class today the children have carried out investigations that they had planned yesterday. The children wanted to explore the effect of increasing the number of cells had on components. They designed their own investigations and wrote accurate hypothesis. They then developed the mathematical concept of finding the mean in their data. On Friday, we will interpret and analyse our data.
