Space science

The children learnt about chemical reactions from Professor Rosa who came in to teach the children in theme week. They saw how things can change when they mix together. Professor Rosa mixed a tablet and fizzy together and it created a chemical reaction which made them change and the fizzy exploded! It was great fun.

We have also been looking at changes in class. We investigated astronaut pudding and how when the powder and water and mixed together for a while, it changed from a runny mixture to a thick squishy mixture (that tasted delicious!) This was also due to a chemical reaction. The children had fun setting off rockets in the playground too. The mixed together water and effervescent tablets and they reacted by creating gas in the chemical reaction that blew the rocket lid off!
