Savvy Scientists

The culmination of a unit of work occurred last night with the Year 5 Savvy Scientist evening. Boys have been honing their research skills and learning about the legacy of famous scientists. Each student took on the role of his scientist and became this person for the night. 

Boys have learnt about the Information Process, how to use our online encylcopedia Britannica School, as well as how to process and synthesise information. All three teacher librarians have been on hand to assist with the learning process.

 

May the fourth be with you...
