Science Week Year 6

Birch class had a fabulous time during Science Week.  We learnt how to create a ‘Freaky Hand’ by combining a solid (bicarbonate of soda) with a liquid (vinegar) which reacted to created a lot of gas (carbon dioxide) which inflated the rubber glove.  

We also grew crystals by combining epsom salts and hot water with some food colouring.  This produced mixed results – from slushy crystals, to a mass of tiny crystals, to large shard-like crystals.

We also researched Charles Darwin and learnt why he is such a famous scientist.
