Science This Week

A quick insight into some of the exciting Science activities taking place at school this week:
In Year 4 for our Light and Sound topic we have been investigating how the size of a shadow changes when the light source is moved closer or further from the object.

In Year 8 we were investigating how light intensity affects the rate of photosynthesis using pond-weed. We looked at how many bubbles of oxygen the pond-weed produced at each distance from the lamp.

In Science club this week we made an indicator using red cabbage. We cut the cabbage into tiny pieces and put it in hot water for ten minutes to extract the dye. We then tested a number of household substances to see if they were acid, alkali or neutral (vinegar, bicarbonate of soda, cream of tartar and lemon juice).
