We are Scientists!

This half term we have been Scientists.


Some children had shown a keen interest in colour mixing so we decided to explore this further by doing the 'Skittles experiment'. We investigated what happened when we added hot water to different coloured skittles. The scientific vocabulary used by the children was fantastic! 


This half term our story is 'Handa's Surprise'. We have been looking at Africa and comparing it to where we live. The children decided that they would like to know how to get there. One child suggested a boat. We decided to make a boat for Handa. We investigated what material would be best to make a boat with and why. Take a look at our photographs!
