8E Digestive system

To complete 0ur topic food and digestion we made a model digestive system.

We used a pestle and mortar to act as the teeth.

The plastic bag acted as the stomach. We added some coffee.
 We squeezed all of the water out, which would happen in the small intestine.

We know what happens at the end!

10R Sensory

10R slime factory for the Enterprise Fayre

10R had a very messy week exploring slime recipes, experimenting with colours and textures and producing our very own slime. We created Elf Snot, Reindeer Poop, Candy Cane slime and Unicorn Poop. Of course, we had to try it out first as part of our research and development. Our slime proved to be very popular, we made £70 profit.

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.
