Science Day


This year we zoomed off to outer space and took a wet and wild walk amongst the planets of the solar system.  It made us realise why some planets are hot and some are extremely cold and we found out that on our favourite planet, Neptune, it might rain diamonds!

In our story this week the dinosaurs visited the moon to play a game of football and laid some eggs in the rocket on the way home.  Our challenge was to find the best way to package these eggs so that they survived the voyage back to Earth.  We tested a number of packaging materials (bubble wrap, flour, popcorn, water, tissue paper and cotton wool balls).  The eggs were packed up and dropped.  The best packaging materials were popcorn, flour and bubble wrap.  However, whether the egg always survived the drop in these materials depended on how well the children had wrapped up the egg!  Did your egg smash?
