Magic Monday - Silly Skittles

Date: 9th Mar 2020 @ 8:47am

This half term, Reception are using skills surrounding scientific enquiry by taking part in Magic Monday! Each week we will explore a new science investigation and make predictions, justify opinions and recall events that happened surrounding each experiment. Our first is Silly Skittles - we predicted what would happen to Skittles sweets when they were mixed with water, then milk. We were amazed to see the colours coming off the sweets and mixing together when added to water! When we tried again with milk, we were disappointed to see that no changes occured. However, some beady eyes spotted that the colours were coming off when they looked at the side of the dish. Further investigation saw that the colours were indeed coming off, but we had to look underneath the dish! We were amazed by our investigation and can't wait to see what we find out next! Please ask Reception about Magic Monday to see what you can learn from us :)
