Y5G, Mentos, Coca Cola what a fabulous afternoon.......!

It was an afternoon of Cool Science in Y5G this afternoon as Miss Butler had set up lots of fabulous science investigations for the class. It started with Mentos and coca cola, moved on to vitamin C tablets in film canisters with vinegar and water then moved inside for milk, food colouring and washing up liquid. There was LOTS of fun but also lots of scientific skills were developed from predicting, careful observation and making links with what we already know to try to explain what we saw. If you want to know more, you'll have to ask Y5G!
As in real science, not every investigation went according to plan but the class formulated possible reasons for that too. There was no doubt that it was a very successful afternoon, which has provoked lots of discussion.
(The children have been warned not to try these experiments at home without asking first..........!)
