Year 5 have been boldly attacking the particle theory unit in science. They have been learning about different chemical reactions and how to record these. I bet you do not know what an exothermic or endothermic reaction is - your children do.

They have had the opportunity to watch us teachers perform more captivating experiments. More importantly they were able to be 'proper' scientists using acids and wearing goggles and gloves. Who knew goggles and gloves could create such excitement!

Below are a couple of videos and a few pictues of  Year 5 in action.
