'Making New Materials' or 'Making A Mess' ?

What an awesome start to the new half term! Team NZ and the rest of 5/6 had an explosive start with 'rocket making', 'self inflating balloons' and 'disappearing light' - Oh and let's not forget the diet coke and mentos experiment!

Check out the latest news section on the home page for some video footage of the day, but in the meantime here's a sneak preview of the scientists of the future....

The girls were 'well impressed' with their self inflating ballon.

What a brilliant way to start the new term. The kids came out of school buzzing about the experiments they had done this morning. Pee pee boy seemed particulary popular! :-)
Fingers crossed for more science in the future.

Thanks, Mrs Fussell. It was a really good morning organised by the Milepost 3 teachers and the children were amazing. This IPC unit is Science and Technology led (please see 'The IPC' section within the 'About the School' menu to read more about what the children will be introduced to this term) so expect more 'buzzing', hopefully!

Our deflating balloon did not really work because the coke came out of the bottle! I especially liked pee pee boy it was so funny.I also liked the mentos and coke trick it wasn't as good as the video though.Thanks Mr Bailey, Mr Herring and Mr Brooks for the great day.
