Year 3 had a fantastic time celebrating British Science Week this week by carrying out a range of exciting experiments.

Each morning, the children would be greeted by an investigation which would lead them to practice their prediction, observation, enquiry and recording skills. Here are the links to the experiments we tried so you could have a go at home!

Monday Magic Milk

Tuesday Tornadoes

Wednesday Walking Water

Thursday Thickened Things

Friday Foliage Fort

As well as these ‘bite-size’ experiments, we also carried out two more experiments throughout the week:

Cornflour Slime – which showed us how certain substances can act as both a solid and a liquid, depending on the pressure applied. These are called Non-Newtonian fluids.

Shaving Foam Rain Clouds – which we used to demonstrate precipitation in the water cycle, after learning a great song, of course!
