Science week in the Pre-school group

We have had a very exciting week at Burnett Road.  We have made a lava lamp using oil, food colouring and bicarbonate of soda.  We used a pipette to carefully add drops of the different colours to the mixture.  We have been practising using the pipette during art activities in recent weeks and the children are getting more and more confident in using their fine motor skills to make them work effectively.

We used food colouring to change the colour of white carnations.  As the week went on the colours got more and more intense!

We used vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to create a chemical reaction in our volcano.  It made us all jump as the volcano erupted, we all laughed a lot!
