Exciting explosions…science in Reception.

Reception class were a bit unsure when our learning included watching some explosions outside. Some of us were excited, some wondered if there would be a loud bang and some of us were a tiny bit scared. However, when Mrs Cooper showed us the coca-cola bottle and the mint sweets we couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen.

First we had to line up at a safe distance from the test site, then we had to count down from ten to zero and then…WHOOSH!!! The liquid came ‘exploding’ out of the bottle. Amazing!

Back in class we had a go at ‘mini’ explosions ourselves using Bicarbonate of Soda, vinegar and food colouring. It was a great way to learn about mixing different colours to make new ones.
