Early Years Science Day 18th March

Science Experiments

On Monday Nursery and Reception got together for a science morning to explore different experiments.

Some were observation only, so the children tried to predict what might happen, others the children could be very much hands on and have a go themselves.

The children had a cup with soda water or lemonade which they placed a few raisins.

The children watched as the air in the carbonated drink caused the raisins to dance up and down in the liquid.

There were some gutter pipe with different liquids, the children poured them down to see how quickly they moved. They had Golden Syrup, Vegetable Oil and Orange paint.

We had a group making tunnels from natural materials and a tray with some gel they could explore.

Mrs Vaites made a sand volcano with a mixture of bicarbonate of soda, powder paint and white vinegar.

Probably the children’s favourite was the mints in a coke bottle!! I think this may have been Mrs Vaites’ favourite too.
