OUR Little Oaks love doing science experiments and last week they were all about floating and sinking.
We invited them to play, explore and experiment­ with how and why different objects­ float or sink when placed in water.

This involved a lot of communication, talking and listening, as well as problem-solving skills, and a good dose of scepticism.
Our pupils had to think about what could happen before they tried it in order to create a hypothesis in their mind.
Maybe one day some of them will be able to find solutions to much bigger problems, like pollution and earthquakes.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
