Burravoe Primary School



In Science we have been looking at colour and light. Last time we did science, we used candles to create light. First of all we had to think about safety. Miss Breyley told us all about the safety with the candles. Next we went and got our wooden boxes out of the science cupboard and some sand to put in the bottom of the box. We also got metal holder things to put our candles on. We had to put sand on the bottom of the box so if the candle fell it wouldn’t have any oxygen to keep flaming. We lit the candle after we did all that. We looked at the light the candle created and talked about how we could see it and how it travelled through the air. It was VERY confusing at that point! We had to blow out the candles very carefully at the end so it didn’t blow to much.
