Science Club - Yr1 and 2

Year one and two have been learning about sinking and floating. They had to decide whether the fruit would sink or float. Year one and two have also been learning about absorbency. They had to watch what happened when a folded piece of paper was placed into the water. As the water was absorbed by the paper they unfolded to show a lovely flower. They have also been learning about dissolving. The children placed a skittle into a dish of water and observed carefully. They found that the colour dissolved from the sweets into the water. Have a look at the phots.
