Coke and Mentos

Yr.6 have been looking at reversible and irreversible reactions.  Last week they created irreversible reactions with fizzy drinks and mentos.  They predicted which drink would cause the biggest reaction.  It was a very messy but enjoyable experiment!

Heating in Yr.6

Yr.6 worked in pairs to heat several substances over a candle flame.  They found that some substances changed their appearance e.g ice melted into water, this is a physical change.  Some substances created something new for example if they burnt.  This was a chemical change.

School of Noise

On Friday, Yr.6 were fortunate enough to be able to attend a ‘School of Noise’ workshop at the Brewery Tap. The workshop used a wide variety of analogue and digital equipment to enable the children to explore the science of sound.  They started by using their own bodies to compose original experimental sound art.  The finished product was Continue reading

Acid Tests in Yr.6

Last week Yr.6 tested marble chips, washing soda crystals and bicarbonate of soda to see how they reacted when water, lemon juice and vinegar were added to them.  They found the acids reacted with the carbonates creating an irreversible reaction and lots of bubbles.  They used this knowledge to make mini volcanoes in pairs and Continue reading

Friction

In Science today we recapped our learning on various forces and then focussed on friction. During the lesson the children worked together in groups to try to decide which of the given surfaces had the most amount of friction. The children built ramps with different surfaces, for toy cars and then measured the height of Continue reading
