Science Equipment!:


At Whitehouse we provide lots of exciting opportunities for the children to engage with their science learning and experiment hands-on with a range of different resources. This is one of the many ways that the children therefore engage with their ability to work scientifically.



Look at some of the fantastic resources we have to support the Year 3 topic of rocks!



In Year 4, we have a whole range of electrical components to make circuits!



Forces are one of the topics we do in Year 5 - this is some of the equipment we have for the children to explore this unit!
