Adventurers completed experiments to find the best materials to make a waterproof house for an animal.
We completed our designs in class and then went into the forest to choose a range of different materials and then make our house. Mr Everall tested the effectiveness of the houses by pouring water over them.
This week, we are learning about keeping clean. Last week, we did some writing about hand washing and this week we are looking at teeth. The tuff tray was full of soap and we got stuck in with toothbrushes to clean the crocodiles teeth. Some fantastic descriptions were overheard when the children had their hands in the soap.
This week, we made butter with Mrs McGill. Everyone had a go at whipping the cream until it split into buttermilk and butter. The children shaped the butter into pats before we got a chance to spread it onto bread and have a tasty snack.
The discussion developed about the change in the cream from liquid to a solid and a liquid. The children discussed the other liquids they knew about. We will use the rest of the butter to make flapjack and the buttermilk to make bread.
