Friday 1st July
Homework: Please complete the Geography section of your Transition Booklet. The work is all about volcanoes - remember to think back to our experience in the Science Dome this week to help you. If you are not going to Hinchingbrooke School in September - please talk to an adult at home about something you have enjoyed from our Science Week.
Annabell: This week, I really enjoyed using the microscopes. I looked at insects and found it interesting to see all the details of their features.
Jessie: One of the Science challenges we were set this week was to create a flower/plant sculpture using only coloured paper and scissors. I enjoyed the challenge, although it was really hard to create something without using glue! I was really proud of the flower I created.
Seb: One of the Science Investigations we did in class this week involved turning milk into plastic! We mixed milk with white vinegar, heated it in a microwave and watched it curdle. We then scooped out all the white bits and moulded them together to form a substance which was a bit like putty. We then coloured our putty using food colouring and moulded it into shapes. Over the week we observed how it hardened and turned into plastic; it was very smelly!
