First Class Science Experiments

First Class were very busy investigating & experimenting this week, as we celebrated Science Week 2020.

We discovered a rainbow of colours as we dissolved a solid into a liquid state.

We investigated the importance of using soap when washing our hands. We were amazed to see how much the germs disike soap!

We also explored the power of forces & energy as we made rockets & created balloon rockets. We watched in amazement as they whizzed through the air.

We all worked really hard at creating our very own STEM structures, using only marshmallows & spaghetti.

We really had a lot of fun this week

Science Week Apple 2nd Class

Check out our poor little apple. We have been observing it all week. It has been immersed in water, vinegar and lemon juice. Of course we also have a control to compare our results. We might keep it going for another week and see what happens, yuk!
