Thursday 14th March
Today was science day, we dressed as mad scientists and we carried out a floating or sinking experiment. We made predictions then we checked to see if we were right.
We also talked about lifecycles.
First we learnt a song about floating and sinking.
Evie showed us all how she checked her predictions.
** Fun Science Fact **
When we were doing our experiment we found out that a tangerine will float with its peel on, then we peeled the tangerine, it then sunk. The peel acts like a life jacket.
