As the term drew to an end, what better way to celebrate than a disco! Year 6 turned up in force to do a little dancing and spend a lot more on sweets!

Rockets

Our irreversible changes topic took us outside too!

Here we used our knowledge of chemical reactions to create some rockets!

Rocket 1:  Place a fizzy vitamin tablet and water in a camera film container.  Put the lid on and …..pop!

Rocket 2: Place some bicarbonate of soda and some vinegar in a camera film container.  Put the lid on and …..pop!

Rocket 3: Place some more bicarbonate of soda and some more vinegar in a 2 litre pop bottle.  Hold your hand over the top 0f the bottle while the gas builds up and  ….. whooooooooshhh! (you’ll stink of vinegar!)

Rocket 4: Place a Mentos mint in a bottle of Coke and …..whoosh!

Heating and Irreversible Changes

Posted by Mr Waywell on Apr-16-2014

One of our science tasks was to see what affect heating had on a range of products.

Armed with a tea-light candle and a spoon, Year 6 set to work at predicting and testing whether the changes would be reversible or if a chemical reaction occurred and they were irreversible.

There were some good smells going on in the classroom and a few phantom ash marks appearing on people’s faces!
