Mr Webber, science teacher from Henry Beaufort School visited Chaffinches and Kestrels this week. The children took part in two experiments. They were investigating whether the type of water eg salty, soapy and tap water, effected the number of drops that could fit onto a 1p coin. Mr Webber was impressed with the children’s investigative skills and questioning. One of the questions led to further investigation of whether different types of liquid eg milk, orange juice, fizzy drink etc would affect the number of drops. In the second investigation the children used different sized jars to investigate how long a candle would stay lit for. The children correctly predicted that the flame would go out first in the smallest jar because there was less oxygen.
