Science Week - June 2019

June 28, 2019

The children have enjoyed a variety of Science experiments and activities designed to
develop their skills of scientific enquiry. They have been encouraged to make predictions
about what might happen and then observe closely to discover what actually happens,
finding out about simple scientific processes in a fun, practical way.
The Year 2 children:-

  • saw ‘walking water’ which demonstrated how plants access water

  • explored how air pressure works using a hairdryer and ping pong ball

  • discovered what happens when two substances react when making their own
    ‘erupting volcano’

  • found out about the different components of milk through a ‘magic’ experiment

  • worked out how to complete electrical circuits to light the bulbs.

The Year 1 children:-

  • extended their understanding of floating and sinking by finding ways to make asinking object float and a floating object sink.

  • discovered what happens when two substances react when making some ‘sudsy eruptions’

  • created their own ‘lava lamp’, further developing the concept of floating and sinkingwith the combination of two substances

  • learned about air thrust when making their own air balloon rockets
