Year 5 Manchester University Science Workshop, by Miss Jones

Date: 13th Mar 2019 @ 3:49pm

Today we went to Manchester University for a Science Workshop. We were lucky enough to be able to talk to lots of different people who work in the Science industry. We learnt all about DNA, stem cells and even about materials molecules. As part of this we tested different types of equipment like: 3D printers, Microscopes and even a new structure which tests the strength of materials (we tested chocolate). We also used a banana to make music and were able to have a device on our heads which moved when we thought happy thoughts. It was a lot of fun to learn about different aspects of science.

Ice Cream in a Bag!, by Miss Horvath

Date: 8th Feb 2019 @ 2:39pm

Year 4 have really enjoyed their science topic this half-term on States of Matter. To finish, we spent this morning making ice cream in a bag!


We combined milk, vanilla and sugar in a bag and placed that bag into another bag which contained a LOT of ice and salt!


The salt lowers the ice's melting point and the ice begins to melt. As you create friction from shaking the bags, the milk begins to freeze and become a solid = ICE CREAM! 


We enjoyed making the ice cream but we LOVED tasting it afterwards!
