Today was the launch of Art Week and the theme this year is looking at things differently with a focus on science. We met ‘Chemical Cress’ in assembly who showed some exciting experiments and we learnt that gas needs to expand.
After assembly, Mrs Johanson told us that we’re going to focus on space this week so we started to research lots of space related facts as well as learning a song to remember the order of the planets. We’re very excited for the space dome tomorrow.
Then we went outside to see if we could make ‘space rockets’ using small containers, water and effervescent vitamin tablets. We predicted that the tablet would fizz in the water, creating a gas which escape so the lid would pop off the the container. It was great fun.
