Science Investigation Day
Wow, what a fantastic first day back at school. It has been lovely watching the children reestablishing the friendships that they made in Autumn Term. I am convinced that the children have grown over the holidays!
Today has been very exciting because it has been Science Investigation Day at Ashfield Primary School. In Early Years we were asked to investigate what happens when we add water to skittles. The children made some really good predictions and were really excited when we created a rainbow using the skittles. We used warm water first and then predicted what would happen when we used cold water. We noticed that cold water makes a neater rainbow. We also noticed that the bottom of the skittle completely lost it's coating!
I wonder whether your child can tell you all about the rainbows that we made today...
