Science Day

Today we had a Science day in KS1 . We did lots of investigating, asked lots of questions and found a lot of answers too! Here is what we learnt.

 

Anya learnt that you can't blow bubbles in space.

Sam learnt that if you don't have any air around you you can't blow bubbles. 

Sophia learnt that if you blow a bubble in a rocket it will be thicker than on earth.

Alysha learnt about alien slime goo. When I did it hard it was like a solid. 

Christian learnt if you blow a bubble it always pops if it hits something dry.

Stan leanrt gravity and air make a tornado in the water bottle.

Elliott learnt how to make slime.  When I held it in my hand it was a ball then I opened my hands and it melted through my fingers like a liquid.

Joshua learnt about when your hand goes fast into the goo it won't sink.

Theo learnt that when you put a straw in the liquid and blow on a wet table you can make half a bubble.

Megan learnt that if you make a big bubble on the wet table you can make a double one.  You need a straw and some bubble mix. Next you put the straw in the mix and blow very gently until it makes a big bubble. Next you must get more bubble mix on the straw and gently push it through the bubble gently and blow again.

George learnt that there's no gravity in space.

Christian learnt that if you have things to hold out to the side you can balance.

Keller learnt that if you get a square bubble blower it will still create a sphere bubble.

Riley learnt that you had to spin the bottle to make a tornado.

Aimee learnt about magic mirrors.

Eliot learnt that NASA use structure to get rockets to space.

Liam learnt your eyes look black but they are clear and that lets you see all this stuff. Also we see stuff upside down  but our brain puts it the right way up.

Carolina learnt that big cardboard helicopters are slower.

Reece learnt that you could hear the sea in the long plastic tubes.

The Story of Guy Fawkes

This is "The Story of Guy Fawkes"

 

How can I make my star shine brightly?

 

This term we are going to be learning all about stars in Art, electricity in Science and also space exploration. 

If you have a question bring it in and I will add it to our class page.

 

What are stars made of?

                          How many stars are there?             

                                                                         What are constellations? 

Why are some stars brighter than others?
