To round up our science week, the Science Boffins came in to visit Rathfern for the last week of the Spring term. Each class from Year 1 to Year 6 had the opportunity to explore an area in science.
States of matter workshop – allowed the children to learn about atoms and to discuss the three states of matter. The children used dry ice to create their own mini pot of ice cream.
Plasma ball and playful polymers workshop – allowed the children to explore plasma flashes and a mini lightning strike. To round up this workshop the children had the opportunity to create their very own pot of slime.
Rocket workshop – allowed the children to explore forces and to create their own individual stomp rockets.
