The children in Queen’s House have been taking part in science week. This year the theme is “Exploration and Discovery”.
On Tuesday they took part in science workshops led by Miss Cousins, a science teacher from the senior school. This was an opportunity for the children to learn through hands on experience. As well as making their own rockets, which they sent into the air using air pumps, they also enjoyed making ”alka seltzer” popping rockets that went so high they had to launch them outside! They explored the properties of slime and created exploding volcanoes using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda.
As you can imagine the children had great fun trying out all these activities.
