Coke, Mentos, Dr Pepper and Tic Tacs Eruption (also known as a soda geyser) is a reaction between the carbonated beverages. They cause the beverage to expel from its container. The mints catalyse the release of gas from the beverage, which creates an eruption that pushes most of the liquid up and out of the bottle.

Have you got a science set at home?

Don't worry if you haven't, there are loads of experiments you can do using things from around your home.

We are going to use this space to highlight Stanley St. Andrew's super scientists.

Send in photographs and videos of your amazing science and engineering experiments.  Don't forget to write up your experiment so that we can all understand what you are doing.

WARNING!

Don't forget: science can be dangerous. 

Get permission and help from your adults before doing any experiments.

We are so grateful,to Barry, for helping and supporting our Stanley School Coding Club . Coding Club Champion is a well deserved title for the mentoring he has given to the children and Mrs Knifton. Thank you and well done. 

Our champion coder, Barry, what super news.

Science, teamwork makes for dream work and dedication!

Reception and Year one:

Robins' enjoyed the snail game set. The snail game focused on predictability and adding two numbers together. The children had two dice and numbers 1 -12 on a sheet and asked which number do they think will appear the most. The children then had to roll the dice and add the numbers together, then move the snail that was on that number. The children found and discusses that "1 could not be made as the two lowest numbers were 1 and so 1+1= 2 so the smallest number we can make is 2." This was a fantastic activity that the children enjoyed and learnt a lot about numbers.
