Dr Fran visited us from the Cornerstones laboratory to lead a very exciting scientific workshop session. This included learning about subliming (this is when a solid turns into a gas without going through the liquid phase), as you can see from our dry ice experiments below.

In Science, Year 4 conducted an amusing ‘Wacky Races’ experiment to investigate the viscosity of different liquids such as lemonade, washing up liquid and tomato ketchup. They also learned all about solids, liquids and gases, making scientific predictions that resulted in much debate about whether certain materials should be classed as solids or liquids due to their specific properties.
