Science Fun for Year 4

4th February 2022

Year 4 have been working with Winchester Science Museum and having an amazing time carrying out different experiments and investigations: 

Here is what they have been up to...

 

Session 1:

We had a Science show in the morning where we were able to watch different experiments involving carbon dioxide and how it is affecting the ocean. We enjoyed watching the sea water change colour as it became more acidic. Later on in the afternoon, we carried out an experiment which would help us decide what material would be best to make a satellite with, so it doesn't overheat if it gets too close to the sun. We used special lamps to act as the sun.

 

Session 2:

Year 4 were very lucky to have two workshops with the Winchester Science Centre. In the first work shop, we practise coding sound with Microbits. When we shook our Microbit a sound would come out. During the second workshop we made rockets to hold our engines (water bottles), so we could launch them across the playground.
