We made our own wheels of colour and spun them quickly to demonstrate Newton’s theory. (more…)

Solar System

Class 11 set about producing scale models of the planets in our solar system this week. Using scientific data to create correctly sized scaled-down representations of the planets, they were able to visualise the sheer scale of the planet sizes.

Rain in a Jar

This week in Science, Class 3 learnt how to identify rain clouds and what happens when it rains. We made our own rain in a jar using shaving foam and blue food colouring. As our cloud filled up, the food colouring fell down into the water creating a rain-like effect. We Read more…
