Year 2 have been investigating matter in Science this week. We celebrated World Book Day on Wednesday and our theme was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. So to tie in with Science week, we make chocolate crispie cakes and watched how the chocolate melted when we heated it up and turned back to a solid when it cooled down again. We made chocolate slime, and enjoyed exploring the texture of the slime.
We also did an experiment with a gummy bear and skittles to see what happens when you add hot water to them. We predicted that the gummy bear would change size, but it didn’t…it actually melted. The colours came out of the skittles and made a rainbow before all the colours merged into one.
