Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Super Science and Green Fingers

On Terrific Thursday afternoon's we have been engaged in some super science experiements.

Before starting our lesson this week, we reviewed our last science experiment of making crystals using a solute and solvent to create a solution. For those that did not work, we considered why this was and how if we were to do it again we could improve.

This week's experiment was called Bleeding Blossoms. We created our own blossoms using paper, cocktail sticks and tissue. We then coloured only the inside middle parts of the petals before placing them in water. We learnt that due to capillary action, the water with coloured dye in would be absorbed and cause the petals to open and colour to spread. 

We have also learnt capillary action can be seen using celery and coloured water. 

Also on Thursday we started planting peas for our garden. We learnt when is the best time to sow, when they will be ready for harvest and how we can support them to grow.

Furthermore, as part of our Thursday activities, we created our own islands within our art lesson. Take a look:

At the end of this week we celebrated red nose day by wearing red.
