At the wax workshop we closely observed candles and saw how the solid turned to liquid and then to a gas to burn.

In the Vitamin C workshop we investigated the content of vitamin C in a citrus fruit. We had to wear safety googles to keep ourselves safe.

Marble run followed lunch and Miss Farid and Mr Connolly formed a winning team to make the marble drop the slowest but were cheated!

The final activity of the day was bandrollers, were we made elastic band powered wheels but change small things to test what happens.

It was a very enjoyable day and all the pupils did the school proud with their behaviour and science knowledge.
