Garden Suburb Junior School

Year 6 Science Carousel

For Science Week, Year Six led the lower years in a carousel of fun experiments.

Each Year 6 classroom became a laboratory for the morning and the children set up and managed their experiments independently. They introduced their experiments and guided the younger children through writing predictions, completing the activity and then discussing what had happened and why, for their conclusions.

Experiments ranged from the weird to the smelly and messy with children walking on eggshells, dropping eggs that had been soaked in vinegar and creating mini fireworks in a jar with food colouring, oil and water.

All the children enjoyed participating in the science carousel, learning from each other and applying their scientific knowledge to the different experiments.
