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.
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!!!
