Welcome to ‘Little Bookworms’ our online children’s book club! Join us each month to explore a variety of exciting and educational book themes. This month, the theme is science!
Children are born with an intrinsic motivation to explore, question, experiment and discover. The early development of the scientific mind can be seen in a child’s fascination in a disappearing puddle, as they measure a growing flower, or experiment with mixing paint. Our educational programme, Innovate & investigate looks at STEM activities and empowers children to think for themselves; enabling them to become independent, resilient and curious for life.

Little Neil’s dreams took flight when he rode on his first airplane as a child. After studying aeronautical engineering and time spent in the navy, he became a pilot. From there, he was selected to take a trip to where no human had gone before – the moon! Along with his team, Buzz and Mike, he was the captain of the Apollo 11. And Neil took a giant step for humankind as the first person to ever step onto the surface of the moon.
