Skittle Science

To celebrate Science week the children in Kingfishers class became scientists. The children listened to the story of the ‘Mixed Up Chameleon’ and we did the Skittle experiment and a chromatography experiment focusing on colour! Before we embarked on our investigation, we thought about what it meant to think “ scientifically “ and discussed the meanings of the words; prediction, observation and conclusion. We also learnt that all good scientists think of further questions they would like to investigate. The children really enjoyed the experiments and came up with great predictions and conclusions. They also did extremely well resisting the temptation to eat the investigation!
