Science at Greenvale

Whether it is in school or outside of school, we love Science at Greenvale!

These are our Science principles and vision:

Miss Ashen is in charge of all things Science at Greenvale and loves to hear about any science learning you have done outside of school!

Autumn Science Challenge - grow your own crystals!


You will need:

  • Leaves or paper cut out leaves
  • Salt
  • Water
  • A tray or plate


  1. Make a salt solution by mixing salt into hot water until no more salt will mix in.
  2. Put some autumn leaves onto a plate or tray (Tip - this works best with thicker leaves or cut out paper leaves).
  3. Pour a thin layer of the solution over the leaves.

Wait! As the water cools it will evaporate and leave salt crystals forming on the leaves.
