Year 1 and Year 2 children took part in a science afternoon and invited parents / carers in to carry out a range of practical experiments. The children visited four teachers. In class 7, the children made a raincloud and learned that once the clouds get full of water, they can’t hold anymore and the water falls back to the ground. In class 8, the children enjoyed taking part in an investigation to find the best way to make a plasticine ball float. They found the best way was to mould it into a boat shape! In class 6, the children had to measure how long it took for a gyrocopter to fall and then investigate what would make it fall faster. Adding paperclips was a favourite! The children thoroughly enjoyed making a chemical reaction to make a volcano erupt. They did this by mixing baking soda with vinegar. Thank you to all of the parents / carers for attending. We hope that you had as much fun as the children?!
