SwimInspire with Birmingham Uni

Year 4 and Year 5 were joined for the afternoon by members of the University of Birmingham's elite swim squad. They taught us about swimming and also gave us more idea of what life at university is like. Check out the pictures of a very fun and interesting afternoon!

Egg experiment

Eggciting experiment! 

For Science week we did an experiment to see which liquid was most harmful for teeth.

First we got four containers and four liquids, the four liquids were water, cola, milk and orange juice. We used egg instead of teeth because they are both made from calcium carbonate.

Can you guess which liquid did the most damage? It was the orange juice because it has lots of different acids.
