Recently we held our Green Schools Action Day. We had lots of fun with a quiz, games, art work and experiments all based on water. First we had a whole school quiz all about interesting water facts. Pupils were divided into teams with all classes mixed up together.
We also looked at different water experiments. We learned that oranges float normally but sink when peeled!
We also saw that eggs normally sink but float in salty water and oil floats on water but washing up liquid makes oil and water mix together.
An effervescent tablet brought water to the top of the oil, it looked like a lava lamp!
We also had fun painting a water barrel which we will use to harvest rainwater. The water we save will be used to water plants and vegetables in our school garden.
