About: Mr Carroll

10C Savoury Scones

In Life Skills, we made cheese and spring onion scones. First, we weighed the ingredients and mixed them together…

We shaped the dough and put it in the oven…

While it was baking, some of us had an explore with the flour…

We then sat and eat our efforts…

Until next time.

7H The surface of the moon

In science, we having been looking at the moon. We made moon sand, a mixture of flour, massage oil and glitter…

We then used different types of pastry cutter to explore the moon sand. We described the shapes and animal that we had made…

Until next time…

7R Light and Shadows

In science, we having been looking at our solar system. We have been exploring how light from the sun can effect our planet. Today, we decided to look at the shadows, and what effects them.

We looked at different light sources, the words we use to describe materials in relation to light (opaque, translucent and transparent) and the effects of moving the light source on a shadow.

A lesson about shadows wouldn’t be complete without the obligatory shadow animal show…

o

If we have been learning about light and shadows, what do you think our next science lesson will be about?

Until next time.

10C Catch it, Kill it, Bin it

We have been practising our personal hygiene skills. We have been following the government’s “catch it, kill it, bin it” campaign.

Until next time.

10C Felt

In creative studies, we have been exploring textiles. Last week we looked at threading and sewing, this week we tried our hands at making felt…

I hope you like our efforts. Until next time.

10C Cooking Skills

Since we aren’t going far out and about, we have decided to make our own cafe in the classroom. In addition to picking a name and collecting the different utensils needed, we have been practising our cooking skills over the past few weeks. We have made a range of different foods.

First, we made Krispie marshmallow cakes, and ate them on Macmillan coffee morning…

We made pita bread pizzas, both sweet and savoury…

And this week, we made fluffy fruit scones, with a very different ingredient (yogurt, yes, yogurt, I know, that’s what I thought, yes fermented milk, yogurt, yes)…

The yogurt was a winner, so much in fact that all the staff copied the recipe and took it home. I hope you liked our efforts. Until next time.

10C Arts and Crafts

In creative studies, we made fairy houses from 2 litre plastic pop bottles. We decorated them with acrylic paint and various items…

Some of us started to use a glue gun…

I hope you like our efforts…

Until next time.

10C Modelling the digestive system

In science, we have been learning about the human body. This week, we modelled the digestive systems and the organs involved.

First we modelled Mr Carroll’s breakfast of coffee, shredded wheat, yogurt and an apple…

The teeth chew the food and saliva is added…

It the travels down the oesphagous into the stomach and it mixes with digestive acids…

From the stomach, it travels through the intestines, and nutrients and water is absorbed…

And finally it plops out the other end…

Apologies for only a few of us on the photos but some of our class were a little queasy watching this demonstration, both staff and pupils.

Until next time.

7H Galaxies

In science, we have looked at our solar system and galaxies. We have been describing the different astral bodies and modelling the different phenomena that occur. Yesterday, we made a model of a nebula in a bottle. First we put some cotton balls in a bottle…

We then added paint and glitter….

We greatly enjoyed mixing and pouring to make our galaxies.

We then made galaxy oobleck. We mixed our ingredients together…

And then added water…

We then explored our galaxies…

We had great fun exploring the oobleck galaxy but some of us had to tidy up…

Until next time.

10C Sew Amazing

In creative studies, we have started a topic on textiles. First, we learned how to thread beads…

We then used a needle and thread to practise our sewing…

Until next time.
