Let Your Light Shine
Today we really enjoyed being scientists and experimenting with tea! We needed a blackcurrant tea bag, paper towels, cold water and a plastic cup. Miss Dwan asked us the question 'what happens to tea bags when we add cold water to it?'. We all predicted that it changes in colour, smell and taste but we were surprised to observe something else too. If you look very carefully you can see the tea leaves reacting with the water as they float up and down quickly just like they are moving in an elevator. Have a go at home and see what happens..
Today we had a fantastically messy day doing some marbling! We only needed 2 ingredients: shaving foam and marbling ink. First you fill a tray with shaving foam and then you squirt some coloured dye into the mix and finally dip your paper into the dye. Next week we are going to cut out our patterned paper and make some mini planets. We each made either a hot or cold planet and we will research some information about our chosen planet.
We are celebrating these superstars this half term who have completed some of their homework projects. They amazed us with their realistic plates of healthy foods and confident explanations about each part of the plate. Check out our fantastic rockets too! Excellent work and keep up all the hard work!
