Robert Boyle Home Learning

As some of you may know, we are having a new Science classroom built and it will be called the ‘Boyle Building’ after the scientist, Robert Boyle.

This half term, in addition to the work I am sending out/the children are completing at school, I would like you to have a go at some of the activities in the document below all about Robert Boyle. I have included some very fun (and rather messy) experiments that I hope will bring awe and wonder and help the children understand a little more about why our new Science classroom is named after Robert Boyle. Please note, if your child is coming into school I will be doing all of the activities with them so you do not need to do them at home.
