Light and dark workshop

Larch class took part in a light and dark science workshop today. We shared our prior learning on light and dark and were taught even more engaging scientific information! Children were able to make a kaleidoscope to show how light reflects off mirrors, go into a pitch black tent to see what happens to our eyes, as well as make finger puppets to show how objects block light and make shadows. Ask your child to explain how the sun, moon and Earth work together to form day and night!

Celery and food colouring!

In Science, Larch class conducted an investigation. We wanted to know how water travelled through plants so we planned an experiment to find the answer! We decided to use celery as our plant. After discussions, we realised that water was see-through, so in order to see it we mixed it with food colouring. We made sure our investigation was fair so used 50ml of water in each beaker. We are currently awaiting the results to see what happens to our celery!

UV light

In Science today, we learnt about the effects of UV light. We discussed what UV light is, how it enters our atmosphere and the damage it can cause to our bodies. We conducted an experiment where we closed our eyes for 30 seconds and then watched what happened to our pupils. We were amazed to see that our pupil shrunk as we opened our eyes!
