During the Spring Term, Miss McKay our Science lead, launched a Science Club for members of Year 4 and Year 5.
Her fellow scientists conducted many investigations, whilst exploring WOW activities which developed their curiosity about the natural world.
Some of these fabulous investigations included:
Who can make the strongest structure? How many building cubes can it hold?
Can we fit through a piece of paper?
Does the size of the gyrocopter effect how many times it spins or how long it takes to fall to the floor?
Which boat can hold the most building cubes?
AND the messiest, but most enjoyable of all- MAKING CORNFLOUR SLIME.
Cornflour slime is also known as a Non-Newtonian liquid. This means it changes states between a solid and liquid depending on the pressure you apply. If you apply pressure to the mixture it will stiffen and become a solid, but leave this on your hands and it will melt away like ice cream!
