Science week

This week we have been celebrating science week! This has given lots of opportunities to experiment and investigate!

We have been planting cress seeds and talked about growth and changes over time. We have also made some amazing bubble pictures with paint.

The children have investigated the properties of different substances by discovering what happens when we mix, paints, liquids and substances together.  On Thursday we made ‘magic milk’ adding dish soap to milk and drops of food colouring to watch the colours rapidly disperse in a dish – making the colours dance.

The children were also busy making ‘wave discovery bottles’ adding oil and blue food colouring to water with sparkles and shells. Today we finished the week making fizzy colour explosions, using vinegar food colouring and bicarbonate of soda. Watching the colours fizz together when adding vinegar using pipettes.

We hope the children had as much fun as we did! Hopefully they will share their experiences with you and chat about it at home 🙂
