Science Week


This week has been Science Week! We have been conducting lots of exciting experiments and have had visits from real life scientists.  We had a class competition to see who could create the slowest marble run using everyday materials from around the school.  7 Seconds was the winner in both classes!  We have also worked in small groups to create our own experiments including finding out ‘What sweet makes the best volcano?’ and ‘What material protects an egg the best?’  We created our own question, decided what equipment we needed, planned how we would conduct the experiment and ensured it was fair, conducted the experiment and then presented our results.  We worked so cooperatively and scientifically; meaning we created some exciting experiments with amazing results.  On the final day of Science week we had a visit from the Living Rainforest and met many creatures including cockroaches, scorpions and Rosie the tarantula.  It was a very enjoyable week and we certainly seem to have some budding Scientists in Nightingales and Hummingbirds!
