1st September 2020: Year 6 Oil Spill Science Experiment
As part of their Science topic, Caring for the Environment, Year 6 had a practical lesson, where they had to simulate an oil spill. The investigation required them to mix oil and water and then test the effect of the oil on different items. They then wrote up their findings on which natural item could be cleaned the easiest.
The Year 6 students found that items like the feather and leaves were very difficult to clean, highlighting the disastrous natural consequences following oil spills.
