Small School, Big Questions...
At Bosbury we encourage children to think about the world around them by asking questions about what they see, hear and experience. On this page you will find a range of big questions which the children have posed, as well as other questions which the children (and staff!) have had a a go at attempting to answer. It is important to note that there are no right or wrong answers!
A new Big Question is posed every week in the Bosbury Telegraph!
"Have we seen every type of weather there is? Or could there be a new type of weather that we've not seen yet?" - Eliot from Class 4
"Will we keep finding new animals or will there be a point when we have discovered them all?" - Thea from Class 4
"Why do people believe in different Gods? Could there be one God that just looks different depending on who sees him/her?" - Archie from Class 4
