Super Science

24th May 2021

On Friday, P5 had an experiment day as a treat for their behaviour and effort since their return to school after remote learning. 

The three scientific areas we looked at were: - Magnetism

                                                                                 - Static Electricity

                                                                                 - Chemical reactions

We learned about the properties of magnets, how static electricity can be generated, and what happens when chemical reactions take place. 

Experiments included: - Orange slices and baking soda (this was tasty!!)

                                         - Bending flowing water with a balloon

                                         - Making alka-seltzer rockets 

                                         - Magnet exploration and play

                                         - Coke and mentos explosion

All children understood the importance of safety and adult supervision when carrying out the experiments. 

We hope to complete some more experiments in the near future!
