We have been really enjoying our STEM week so far! Walnut Class have been busy creating their own investigations, thinking about what they wanted to research. For example, finding out which drink was the worst for your teeth was the most popular experiment! Some of us wanted to look at which fizzy drink and Mentos combination created the biggest explosion (I wonder why?!), whereas others looked at which material would be best for staying afloat.
After we completed our investigations, we then created posters to summarise what we found out while trying to answer our scientific questions. We presented these to the class in our groups, sharing how we carried out our experiments, our final results and reflecting on what we might change if we were to repeat them.
We have loved being scientists this week! :) Check out our photos below to see how we got on...
We were very lucky and got to start our week with a visit from Bright Sparks Science! We had two exciting (and a bit messy!) experiments to complete, involving making our own slime and then some jelly worms. It was a lot of fun learning about the chemical reactions involved to produce these. Check out our photos to see how we got on
