In Science week we have thought about Science and what it means. We thought about what we would like to find out and wrote some questions. We did a skittles experiment. We watched the video from Dr Clint to see what to do and then we made predictions before we carried out the experiment. It was good fun to watch the skittles lose their colour and turn white.
We talked about where Polar Bears live. We know that they live in a very cold place so we discussed how we thought they kept themselves warm. We did an experiment to find out. Some children thought that the fur kept it warm but when we put on a woolly glove and put out hands in water they were still cold. We talked about the Polar Bears having a layer of fat. We used 2 food bags, one with a layer of fat and one without. We noticed that when we put our hand in the one with they layer of fat we were warmer when we dipped it in cold water than the one without.
Scientist of the Week
We have had lots of fun this week, talking about and completing lots of science experiments. We chose a scientist of the week and our class winner was Alfie.
Well done Alfie for some amazing observations and questions.
