SNAP….. BANG… POP!
Last week Year 5 Science club had a great time putting some cool chemistry to the test as they exploded sandwich bags. The children worked together in groups to observe what would happen when mixing warm water with vinegar and baking soda. They each learnt that when these two substances do mix together, they create an acid base reaction, and eventually as the carbon dioxide fills up inside the sandwich bag, it causes an epic explosion!
This week, 5C have been very excited to discover a range of interesting facts about Chinese New Year; a multicultural festival which is celebrated in many countries around the world. The children were fascinated to hear a story about the Chinese Zodiac and loved learning about many of the family traditions that take place right across China during this celebration. After learning about the Lantern Festival, the children made their very own Chinese lanterns made out of paper.
