Science club

Today we made red cabbage indicator.

We chopped up the red cabbage and added water, we used a pipette to work on our science skills.


  
We then placed the red cabbage and water over the Bunsen burner.



We then filtered the red cabbage, when it was cool.


  
We then tested the red cabbage indicator on some unknown liquids.

We used the pH scale to tell us what they were.


  

Family Group- Article 6

Article 6 states that children have the right to live and develop, and that governments should ensure that children survive and develop healthily. Our family group decided to look how children live in refugee camps. We made a short presentation on the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan. We also made model of a tiny part of the camp. I hope you like our efforts…

Until next time.

Family groups

Today some of our groups presented what they have been working on over the last few weeks. Presentations included: performing plays, creating artwork, model making and creating stories. Everyone has done a fantastic job.
