Lochlan and Arwen made their own rainbow with a packet of Skittles and some water.

Edie enjoyed carrying out the fireworks in a glass and rain cloud in a jar experiments

Aimee has found a great science experiment and has got a challenge for her class mates. The experiment is that they've got a plate of juice, an empty glass, matches and some coins. They have to get the juice into the glass using those items. BUT without touching the plate. (This experiment requires adult help as matches are required).

The solution to Aimee's experiment is in the video below.

Jack enjoyed the helicopter experiment.

Oliver has designed a way to increase drag in our science investigation

Aimee has completed the 'How slow can you go?' activity for Science. She tested the impact of different weights, frictions and designs on how quickly the bottle rolled down the ramp.

Amelia has made a forces booklet, brilliant work Amelia!

Oliver has been carrying out some of the forces challenges this week.

Lochlan produced a fantastic PowerPoint presentation of the forces investigations he carried out.

Millie set up her own experiment to test gravity. She got a bucket of water and attached it to a zip line. She did this to see if an empty bucket would slid down the line quicker than a bucket that had some water in it. Look at her data to see what the results were.

Aimee is researching forces by conducting a variety of experiments.

Aimee has been studying Forces.



For a fun science experiment Millie has been following the progress of a fast growing marrow plant, who she called Martin the Marrow. Though he has had a bit of an injury recently he is growing fast.   She has attached her progress spreadsheet. Fantastic use of ICT Millie, well done.
