Year 5 Science Challenge
Wow! An amazing day of Science Challenges were completed by enthusiastic Year 5 students from West Malling, St Katherines, Shernold and Barming schools. The day began with bath bombs making with students working against each other to produce the fizziness bath bomb. Students had to work in teams and consider consistency of the mixture and also colour and design. Next was parachute making with eggs in the baskets. Many students eggs survived the drop but there were also some fatalities with cracked eggs everywhere! Students were also marked on their parachutes speed and design. The day ended with some Bunsen Burner activity. Each team carried out flame tests and then had to use their knowledge to find out the unnamed chemical. Three teams were successful in this heat and will return for the final in October!
Thank you to Mrs Bailey who delivered the challenge.
