This year some 4th class boys are involved in a lunchtime science club. The club has already built some unusual engines using rubber bands. Other activities include planning and creating a wildlife garden, science experiments and recording. The school is in the process of applying for a Discover Primary Science award of excellence and the science club is organising and keeping a Discovery log.
