Welcome to Year 4
2017 – 2018
On Tuesday 12th December, Year 4 went to Magna, the Science Adventure Centre. We took part in an exciting workshop about Solids, Liquids and Gases, where we made paint using lots of everyday items as well as watching what happens when you empty a whole tube of Mentos into a bottle of lemonade – it caused quite a mess when it reached the ceiling!
As we knew that Magna was a former steelworks, we found out some more by watching the ‘Big Melt’, where we discovered how the factory made usable steel by heating steel scraps and forming them into new metal. Some of us couldn’t believe that steel could actually be liquid!
After our workshop, we all enjoyed exploring all of the different zones. There were 4 – one for each of the elements. We enjoyed making a fire tornado in the fire zone, excavating rocks in the earth zone, making lots of noise in the air zone and finally playing with lots of pumps and jets in the water zone. Ask us which was our favourite!
