Fire and Ice!

IMG_20141218_133341The Fire and Ice show was an amazing extravaganza that wowed the entire school in Irchester.  The teachers, teaching assistants and even our headteacher were amazing telling all 350 of us the science of fire and ice in a 90minute heart stopping scientific showcase!

The children were amazed by our wonderful teacher’s knowledge and how many experiments they did.  The experiments ranged from huge, coloured flames to magic bubbles to small fireworks to cold ice.  We even saw acidic smoke! The sublimating carbon dioxide flowed off the stage and made a magical atmosphere.

The lab_13 committee helped by running on and off of the stage preparing the next act’s resources, turning on and off the lights and took films and pictures of the highlights. We were also Health and Safety Officers. It was an amazing show full of action packed, mind-blowing science.

The most amazing part was that all of our teachers were such great performers and could put on such an inspiring and intriguing show for us children. We know some of them were a bit nervous and practiced a lot in the lab but we want to say a very big WELL DONE! Now we might expect a science show from our teachers EVERY term!
