We have the right to play

Article 31

You have the right to play and relax by doing things like sport, music and drama.

Article 31 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child says that children and young people have the right to have fun in the way they want to, whether by playing sports, watching films, or something else entirely. They have the right to rest, too. Children and young people should be able to take part freely in cultural activities, just like adults.

A Snake of Bubbles with Base 2!

Base 2 enjoyed a science workshop about solids, liquids and gases. They learned how to identify each of them and then conducted some experiments with liquids to make a fizz. Then they added a solid to the liquids to look for fizz. Finally Matthew and Linda, the lovely scientists, did a whopper of an experiment which produced a ‘snake of bubbles’! We had a great time on Tuesday morning.

Fizz, Boom, Bang!

We learned about what happens during a chemical reaction and created some amazing chemical reactions like colour change, bubbles, heat and light in our experiments.
