As part of the STEAM week, Year 5 have been concentrating on conducting some scientific experiments. The week was spent devising strategies: organising, planning and pricing an Antartica Expedition. The class has also worked hard to build a rocket that was launched to find out which one had the most aerodynamic shape to fly the highest. We all had fun – a lot of laughter at some designs!!

We also thought about chemical reactions and looked at creating our own volcanoes. We used vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to build the most vociferous one! We had to think which element was required in bigger quantities to make the most spectacular eruption.
