Today in our Science class we’ve chopped up some apples and grabbed toothpicks. What could we make? 3D or 2D shapes, a dome, a tower, an animal?
Building apple structures combines design, engineering, and fine motor skills!
We’ve had a lot of fun. Have a look at the outcome!
Today we’ve made soap from recycled oil! This laboratory experiment is part of our Polar Bear Project.
Students from the 1st year of A levels have shown us how to make soap.
This is their recipe:
250 g of recycled oil
250 ml H2O
5 g salt
35 g caustic soda
some drops of lavender water
This term we’ve been learning and practising English through the story THE BALLOON. We’ve had a lot of fun and here are some pictures of some of the activities we’ve been doing.
In K5 Science we have built a balloon rocket. We’ve had so much fun! Here are the instructions:
-Thread one end of the string through the straw
-Tie each end of the string between two solid supports such as a chair, table leg or door knob, making sure it is strung tightly.
-Blow up the balloon but do not tie it.
-Holding the opening of the balloon closed with your fingers, tape one side of the balloon to the straw so that it hangs horizontally below the string.
-Get ready for launch and let the end of the balloon go. Watch as the air escapes and sends your balloon rocketing across the string track!
READY STEADY GO,
Today in our Science class we’ve listened to the story THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR by Eric Carle.
It is a vivid and colourful tale about a newly hatched caterpillar that eats his way through all kinds of food.
