Year 10 Science: Acids and Metals

Year 10 are currently working on the ‘Are you overreacting?’module for their Entry Level qualification.

This week we have been looking at the reactants and products produced when a metal reacts with acid and we measured the rates of reaction.

We also tested for hydrogen gas.

Finally we have placed iron, zinc and magnesium in order of reactivity when acid is added to them.


A fantastic day out

We have had a fantastic day. The circus was great. We are now back at the caravan enjoying the sun and eating pizza!!!

Blackpool in the sun

Today we made our breakfast and came into Blackpool. We bought some gifts, went on the beach, had fish and chips for lunch and now we are ready for the circus.

Another fabulous sunny day beside the seaside, we visited the circus which was amazing, enjoyed fish and chips, the arcades and spent our holiday cash.

Up-Cycling Latest

This afternoon, we have been preparing for the Summer Fair in July.

We have been making Garden Tealight Holder to sell on our Up-Cycling stall.

We are covering our tealight holders in pretty flowers, before varnishing them to make them weatherproof, and putting a citronella candle in each one.

We managed to make and stick flowers on half of our jars today. We will do the other half of the jars next week, and then varnish them after half term.

We think they will look great once they are finished.

We hope you all come to the Summer fair and buy one!!!

Using our ‘Big-Shot’ to make our flowers.

The ‘Big-Shot’ works by pressing flowers shaped cutters into the paper.

The flowers come out attached to the cutters.

We then have to push the paper flowers out of the cutter.

Some of the tissue paper flowers we made.

Sticking our flowers onto our jars.

It’s a very skill-full job!!!

Full concentration needed!!!

Well done team!!!

Not finished yet – but we think these will be looking fantastic one they are done!!!
