In topic this week the children investigated the most buoyant hull shape by making pasticine models and testing to see which boat could hold the most marbles before sinking.
The children were very excited to research catapults and design one of their own in preparation for an investigation next week.
Did you know that yeast prefers sugar?
Class 4 proved it : yeast and sugar had the biggest reaction, the mass of the bag decreased and the most gas was produced.
The Vikings used yeast and other microbes in their food making.
In science we investigated:
Can we make butter from cream like the Vikings did?
Yes we can. See the process and the tasting session afterwards!
This week's recipient of the Erin Kaye Writers' Award is:
World Book Day - Thursday 7th March
Wonderful reading in church from class 4 today. We are very proud of all of them.
We had an excellent start to our "Traders and Raiders" topic with parent afternoon on Wednesday. What a set of vicious Vikings!
