Pupils took part in science week and really enjoyed all the practical and fun experiments. They predicted which would make the best material to protect Humpty Dumpty when dropped from a fall. Humpty ended up with a few cracks in his head! We tested polystyrene shapes, saw-dust, Duplo blocks and clothes with some surprising results.
Pupils also used food colouring and watched how the coloured water traveled along the kitchen paper and mixed to make a new colour. The hair-dryer and ping-pong ball was great fun followed by making rain-clouds using more food colouring and shaving foam!
We made our own hoover craft and had a car-balloon race, investigating how air moves. We were amazed with the results of our egg experiment. We place eggs in vinegar and left them for 2 days after which the shells washed off and the eggs were bouncy! Yet they were still raw on the inside which we discovered after we bounced them a little too much!
Pupils also worked together to make a rocket using a straw taped a balloon, with the straw threaded through a string. Take a look at some more of our photos of our different experiments we tried during science week.
