Our Super Scientists from Year 6 (in the Critical Worker Bubble) completed a science experiment on 3rd February.
Each scientist write there own recount of the experiment and their observations:
This is a cool experiment we did on the 3rd of February with skittles. This demonstrates osmosis. Osmosis happens in liquid it start for a high concentrated area to a low concentrated area. I poured water on skittles waited a few minutes. Then we start to see the colour moved from the skittles (high concentrated area) to everywhere else (the low concentrated area).
Diffusion happens in a gases. Diffusion is where the particles move all around the room the same as osmosis (high concentrated area to a low concentrated area). For example, if you have a slice of cake the particles around the cake are move from a high concentrated area to a low concentrated area though diffusion.

What we did for science on the 3rd of February was amazing because we did an experiment with skittles to show osmosis. This experiment show how the colour moves form a high concentrated area (my skittles) to a low concentrated area (the empty plate). This represents how the osmosis happens in the liquid and makes the colour of the skittles move in a pattern the colour on the plate.
Osmosis happens in a liquid.
Diffusion happens in different gases. Diffusion is similar to osmosis as the particles travel from a high concentrated area to a low concentrated area. For example, when you spray deodorant from a can the gas enters the environment (high concentrated area) and spreads around the room (low concentrated area) until the gases is distributed out equally/evenly.
