Science Week in 1st Class

1st Class enjoyed science week by participating in lots of different experiments.

We investigated static electricitiy with balloons – making our hair stand up and even managing to pick up pieces of tissue with a balloon!

We managed to blow up a balloon without blowing air into it with our hands and mouths. Instead we used baking soda and vinegar. The gas made the balloon blow up!

We tried to make a paper clip float but it would just sink to the bottom of the water. We then put tissue gently on the water which floated. Then we put the paper clip on top and then we gently prodded away the tissue – this resulted in the paperclip floating!

1st Class also participated in a group challenge. Using spaghetti and marshmallows, each group had to build a model of the new school hall! This was a tricky challenge but great fun!
