This week and next week our focus for learning is science. We have a number of workshops and shows taking place in Carlibar. There is also a shared family learning challenge sheet that has been sent home with a range of science topics for you to choose from. There will be certificates for everyone taking part and mystery prizes available.
On Tuesday 24th March we have Think Science delivering a workshop on electricity for primary one children and all family centre children will be able to visit the inflatable planetarium to learn more about space.
