Last week was also Science week. We took the opportunity to learn a little about Herd immunity and sorting different plastics by testing whether they floated or sank and whether they snapped, didn't snap or left a white stress line. Some excellent work from the children in Cedar class.
A change is called irreversible if it cannot be changed back again. In an irreversible change, new materials are always formed. Sometimes these new materials are useful to us. Heating can cause an irreversible change. For example you heat a raw egg to cook it. The cooked egg cannot be changed back to a raw egg again. Cedar class made some scrambled eggs to show this happening.
The children made sherbet as part of their Science lesson.
Class 9 entered the 'Ultimate School Trip' with Jet2. They were lucky enough to be selected as one of the top five entries in Manchester. The children then rallied around and gained votes to help send them to Spain. After an anxious week of waiting, Class 9 were told they had won the competition for the Manchester area and would be travelling to Spain for a weekend of fun. Check out the video to see what they got up.
