Science Week 2017
We started our week with an interesting assembly called 'The Crunch'. During this
We were also very lucky to receive a visit from the science museum. We found out how to make bubbles and that bubbles only ever make sphere shapes, however big you make them!
In Year 2 we have been learning all about non-Newtonian fluids, or Oobleck Slime. Oobleck slime looks like one thing (a liquid) but acts like another (a solid). Our investigations were messy but lots of fun. Look below to see some pictures of our investigations.

We enjoyed making balls with the mixture and seeing how it became runny again when we stopped rolling it around in our hands. Some of the children tried to add more water to make it
