Having fun with fizzy drinks!
Ocean Class wanted to find out which fizzy drink was the fizziest. They decided to weigh fizzy drinks, shake them to get rid of the gas and then weigh them again. They really enjoyed shaking the drinks as hard as they could before unscrewing the cap to release the gas. Their investigation showed that Diet Cola had the most gas.
In science, the children have been learning about skeletons. They learnt that humans have endoskeletons and that our skeletons are made up of lots of smaller bones. The children had fun using cotton buds to create their own skeletons!
