Please look at the wonderful events from this years Science Week:
All year groups took part in some fascinating experiments and learnt about a variety of different scientists throughout the week to celebrate Science Week. Year 5 took part in a experiment were they were predicting which liquids would be acid or alkali by looking at their ingredients and using their knowledge on PH Scale.
Year 1 combined their topic of ‘Splendid Skies’ and Science by creating a storm in a glass to learn more about precipitation. The children filled the glass 1/2 full with water, sprayed some shaving cream on top of the water to fill the glass to ¾ full. They then use their finger to spread the shaving cream evenly over the top of the water. Carefully they mixed ½-cup water with 10 drops of food colouring in a separate container, gently added
the coloured water, spoonful by spoonful, to the top of the shaving cream. When it got too heavy, a storm appeared! Year 1 were focusing their lesson on the observation skills and explaining to their talk partners what they could see!
Year 4 have been experimenting with making active volcanoes to go alongside their ‘Misty Mountains’ Topic. The children were focusing on ensuring their experiment was a fair test and ensuring they only changed one variable to see if results differed. They experimented to see if they reduced or added certain materials from their experiment would it affect the resulting eruption?!
