This week each class are busy preparing their experiments for the Science Week Showcase which will take place every day next week to celebrate Science Week 2017! Each class will show and explain their experiments to all the other classes. Stay tuned for some photographs!
Litmus paper is a type of material that helps people who work with machines. The litmus paper tells them if its acid or neutral. You would get the litmus paper and would dip it in the liquid and it will tell you if it's acid or neutral. How? The paper changes colour then you match the colour to the number .The numbers are from 1 to 14.
What the numbers mean:
0 to 2 =strongly acid HAZARD
3 to 5= Moderately MILD HAZARD
6= Mildly acid No real danger
7.0=Neutral .Non hazard
8 to 9 =Mildly Alkaline . No real danger.
10-12 Strongly alkaline with a mild hazard.
12-14 Caustic and strongly alkaline.
Last week we celebrated Science Week! Every class prepared fantastic experiments and took turns to display and explain them in the school hall. It was great fun and we learned lots!

We are all looking forward to Science Week which will take place from November the 9th-16th. The theme of Science Week is 'The Power of Science!'. At the moment in 3rd class we are planning and creating experiments to show the power of Science! During Science Week we will show and explain our experiments to the other classes and teachers.
