Science week

This week was all about space, science and experimenting in Acorns. We made our own rockets and not only did we get to work with the older children in Year 3 making plastic out of milk, we also got to make a rainbow on a plate! Later on in the week, we had a science treasure hunt and made an ‘exploding rocket’ with cola and mints. The children have thoroughly enjoyed all of the experiments this week!


Cherry – Science Week

Cherry class have enjoyed science week. We learnt about electrical circuits with year 4. The we  experimented with making and creating bubbles. We continued to learn about plants and planted cress. We set up an investigation to observe how well the cress will grow and are continuing to monitor our plants.  Today we have been on a science treasure hunt! We had to work together to find and answer all the clues, which then spelt out a teachers name (connected to science!). Such a great week and still Friday to go!

Pips Science week so far

This week we have looked at where we live on planet Earth using Google Earth.  We have put the planets in order of size using different sized balls and we have made a moon surface and created craters by dropping stones onto the moon surface.  Today some of us made aliens using balloons with tails to see where they went when we let go of them.
