Scientists in Chestnut Class

The children in Reception had lots of fun on the afternoon of Tuesday 6th March making an ‘Ocean inbottle’. 

They worked with a partner and carefully poured water into a bottle so it was half full. They then added a few drops of food colouring and shook their bottles , they were very excited to see the change to the water. Carefully they added shells anddiver to their mini ocean, they all agreed they had created masterpieces!

The last piece of their creation was to add some oil to their bottles.They added the oil and carefully shook it, they explained to Miss Smith that the water had gone all foggy. After leaving the water to settle, they looked at what changes had occurred
Ethan explained, The oil and water has changed places, it’s sitting on the water,”

What fantastic scientists we have in Chestnut !
