10R – fun and games using the touchscreen and EyeGaze equipment.

Sensory Science – brrrrrr it’s cold !

Pupils in 10R are learning about different temperatures this term. Today we explored frozen paints, pupils made marks with them and watched how the paints melted. We filled balloons with watercolours and froze them, they looked like giant marbles. We added salt and watched closely to see how the ice changed, we could even hear it cracking. Finally we added hot water and watched the ice melt leaving us with coloured water.
