Science Week

We did lots of experiments today to celebrate science week.

  1. We put an egg into vinegar to see what would happen to it. We know that vinegar is an acid, so we made some predictions. We’ll check on the egg every day to see if it is changing.
  2. We put hot water on a circle of ‘Skittles’ sweets, it created a rainbow of colour.
  3. We put food dye onto a plate milk. Then we added a drop of soap. The soap breaks down the fat in the milk, causing the colours to swirl and mix.
  4. We put raisins into fizzy lemonade. The raisins initally sank and then they rose again (as the bubbles attached onto them) then they sink again (when the bubbles burst). We called this experiment, ‘Dancing Raisins’.        

Spooky Stories

This week’s story has to contain these words …as the door slammed I knew…You can read all of our stories on our class blog.

One Halloween I was out trick or treating with my friends. I was dressed up as a ghost, Haylie was dressed up as a ‘cereal’ killer and my other friend Dylan was dressed up as a zombie. We where having lots of fun calling from house to house, until we took a short cut down the dark alley way to the spooky house. We went into the garden and walked up to the door. The door was left slightly open so we pushed the door gently and called out ‘trick or treat’. There was no answer, so we quietly crept inside to have a look around. As the door slammed I knew we were in danger. Next we heard a loud laugh, we turned around and standing there were our parents, they had tricked us!

When the door slammed I knew it wasn’t just my imagination! I’d felt something creepy around my bedroom for some time now. Nicol had come for a play-date, we were colouring pictures when suddenly my crayon started moving on its own on the page. Eeek! we both froze and coldness came upon us.
Omg what was that, we looked at each other with scared faces then ran downstairs to tell my Mam. Mam said ‘don’t be silly girls, ghosts are not real’. We had dinner feeling reassured. Then we went back upstairs to find the whole room was covered in Halloween pictures!! Spoooky !!

Skype Call – Sea Turtles, Sharks and Healthy Oceans

We had a Skype Call with Jennifer Nolan today. She taught us all about Sea Turtles and Sharks.

Jennifer also told us about all the litter in the ocean and how it is so harmful to sea creatures, especially Sea Turtles.

We got to ask Jennifer lots of questions and she showed us loads of great photographs. Click here to see some more.

We have decided in our class to try and only use re-usable bottles for our lunch drinks.
