PostHeaderIcon Science Day in Room 6

Room 6 experimented with soap powered boats for Science Day this year. We cut out cardboard boat shapes and applied soap to them which we hoped would propel them through the water!
We split into groups, with each person getting a different job to carry out during the experiment. One person took guesses from the group members about which boat would move faster, one person checked the amount of soap applied to the boat, one person made sure the boats were dropped in the water at the exact same time (to make it a fair test) and the last person was the judge!
We labelled the boats with different coloured stickers so to tell them apart before racing them. The soap worked at pushing the boats through the water! We had lots of fun!

Room 1 had a great time on Science and Maths Day. We learned all about Forces and our experiments included The Balloon Rocket and Puff Power.

Puff Power

The boys and girls made tracks from Lego, Blocks and Stickle Bricks and used a straw and air ( Puff Power ) to blow a bead around their tracks.

Then Mr. Brady helped some of the Best Builders to design and build bigger tracks which the children tried out with their parents.

Maths

In Maths each parent measured their child’s height on our Giraffe Height Chart. We can now compare heights and see who is the tallest, shortest and middle-sized. We will also be able to see who grows the most during the year!
