Science Day

On Friday 17th March the school held a Science Day.

The day was very structured and allowed each child to visit the individual classrooms around the school site where different activities/experiments were taking place. Below are some pupils comments.

Ash class experimented with colours.  'We put milk into a bowl and used three different dyes, mixed with fairy liquid the colours magically disappeared! The reason for this is because the fat mixes with the liquid causing a reaction. Cyrus (yr6 pupil).

Beech class made Oobleck slime. 'Cornflour and water was mixed well, we picked it up and rolled it into a ball which made it hard and when we stopped putting pressure on it, it melted. This means that Oobleck slime is a Newtonian fluid'. Ida (yr6 pupil). 

Sycamore class - 'In sycamore class we made a volcano with baking soda, vinegar, food colouring and water. Then we waited until it errupted.  After that we made rockets with Alka seltzers and water.  The reason it fly's up into the air is because the tablet fizzes and the lid was on so it had to get out so the pressure made it shoot out!' Florrie (yr6 pupil).
