Competition Winners!

During Science Week, we ran a competition for children to guess the job of some scientists, based on three items they showed and talked about. Congratulations to the winning children who worked out what these scientists do.

We also ran a 'Finding Plants' competition for all the family. Plants can definitely be found growing in the strangest of places!
