Terms 4 and 5
EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 have joined Science Club now! We have been experimenting with many things we find around us. There have been so many questions! Sometimes, the children are shown something and asked what they think will happen if we mix it with other things, and then we investigate if their predictions are true!
In the first week, we looked at making a tower of sugar cubes, and saw that our towers would fall over if we stacked them in water! The sugar would dissolve and the water felt strange.
We have also looked at melting ice. By putting salt and water on it, it melted faster! We also used our breath and fingers because they were warm!
In Term 5, we have made towers (as a STEM project), to see who could make the tallest tower from toothpicks and jelly sweets. If we made the top too heavy, it fell over!
