We have been exploring Life Cycles as part of our Science week investigations, we have been lucky enough to be given some Frog Spawn form a teachers daddy, we have completed an activity today , looking at and exploring and predicting the changes that are going to take place.

Day 3 – Dancing Raisins

Today we have been doing the Dancing Raisins experiment, adding Raisins to Fizzy water, we have learnt new words such as Fizzy, Fizzing, Bubbly,Jumping, Sinking , Up and Down
dense, floatation.

We discovered that the water releases carbon dioxide bubbles that attaches to the rough surface of the raisin acting as a flotation device causing them to float”

Day 4 – Exploding Volcanos

Today we have been looking at how Volcanos explode and how the gasses build up, we used a bottle of Coke and Mento’s to wait and watch and predict the explosion”

Day 5 – Skittles Rainbows

The children put some skittles on a plate in a circle , we then added water and observed what happened, we discussed favourite colours, what colour was the brightest, and we sang a Rainbow song – we have had a great Science Week, and maybe produced some future scientists!!”
