On 6th February the Big Bear Planetarium came to our school. All the classes got to visit the planetarium and learn about our Solar system.

 

 

Each class did ‘science stations’. The girls got to do various experiments. Here are some photos from the week.

Testing Resistance

 

 Making Butter: We shook milk to make butter          

Building Bridges: Using our Jaggo blocks we constructed bridges

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cloud Jars: We filled our jar about three quarters full with water from the tap. We used the shaving foam to create a cloud on top of the water. Then we dropped food colouring into the ‘cloud’. As our cloud filled up, the food colouring fell down into the water creating a rain-like effect

 Floating & Sinking

We talked about optical illusions
