The theme for science week this year was 'journeys'. Year 1 and 2 worked together to create some balloon powered cars. We worked in teams to experiment with the size and shape of the chassis. We learnt lots of new skills, such as how to blow up a balloon! It was not an easy task as we had to test which straws were the strongest and how to keep our wheels straight so they spin around.
We also tested which liquids travel the fastest and what we can do to make them go faster. We taught year 5 about how germs travel and experimented to see how we can stop germs spreading to lots of children! We were all amazed at how far germs can spread if we don't cover our noses when sneezing!
