This week we started with a day of exciting science experiments led by Supersonic Sue from Fun Science.
Sue started of with a very exciting assembly, in which at one point she set fire to bubbles on my Mrs Manning's hand! There were a lot of gasps … and not just from the children! All the workshops were fully hands and the children loved them. KS1 and Lower KS2 investigated the science of sweets. They learnt about carbon dioxide and how it is used to make fizzy drinks and sweets. They experimented with different sweets, and enjoyed eating them afterwards. The children loved making gooey slime, especially as it smelt like chocolate, but wasn’t edible. Upper Key Stage 2’s workshops entailed mixing chemicals to see fizzing, bubbling, heat production and liquids that suddenly become solids. A favourite was the popping rockets. Just look at the reactions of St Martin class!
