Irchester news: Let it Snow Science!

December 19, 2017

Snow Tracking

Last week, year 5 made the most of the snow by venturing out to discover unusual tracks that animals left overnight on the field! They managed to identify the beautiful animals that left these mysterious tracks overnight. Hayden from the committee was one of the team: “We followed some fox tracks and we found a massive hole in the fence, we think that the fox was trying to get into the school to find food” Cheryl told us: “We found some marks on the snow under the trees, where snow had melted and dripped off the branches.” Other groups think they also spotted cat, bird and maybe squirrel tracks.

Ice sculptures

Year 4 created some cool ice sculptures! We left them outside overnight on the coldest night so far, when the temperature was predicted to drop drastically to -12⁰C. They even created ice balloons; they used ice, snow, water, leaves, balloons and sticks. They had to create a masterpiece using those few materials. Their work turned out brilliantly and froze solid and it can be seen outside the lab. Here’s a picture! We were surprised that it was still frozen 2 days later!

Thank you for reading our blog by Emily and Finlay! (yr 5)
