Science Challenge Homework

Before half term, the pupils at Throckley were challenged to explore the impact of air pressure on the world around us with only a few straws and a glass of water. The response was tremendous! Children used multiple straws in and out of the water, while others put holes in straws; some even held glasses of water upside down with only a paper base, discovering that we have atmospheric pressure to thank for a drink of water!
