Science Week (28th June - 2nd July)
28th June 2021
In a pot, we mixed 5ml of water with a special 'magic tablet' and put the lid on tightly. We put the pot on the table and stood back. We waited and waited until it went POP!
We put our hands inside the bags and described what we could feel. We felt soft, hard, prickly and rough things.
We had to try and guess what the smells were in the pots. They were lemon, curry, strawberry and mint.
We chose a raisin and put it into some lemonade. We watched them carefully and after a while, they started to jiggle and move about! When the gas bubbles attached to the raisin, it went up and when the gas bubbles escaped, the raisin went down.
We explored how magnets work by racing teachers! We put the magnets in the back of the teacher's car and had to try and move them with a magnetic paddle. If the paddle was the right way, the magnets repelled and pushed against the car, making it move. It was tricky working out which way round to put the magnets!
