What we do

Our Inventors will engage the children in creative observation, investigation and experimentation.  Using a range of materials, children will be encouraged to widen their range of scientific vocabulary as they design, build and create sculptures, pictures, shadow plays and transient art.

Lightbox will encourage and inspire playful mark making and early writing.  This provides a fantastic springboard for children’s literacy development.
