Terrific Thursdays

On Thursdays this term, half the class will do Food Technology, creating culinary cuisines from Japan and France (where our link schools in Year 5 are based) while the other half, instead of doing Forest School (which we will get to do in the Summer term this year) will do Outdoor Science investigations – this means we get to make a mess and don’t have to tidy it up as it’s outside – it’s nature's and Mr Rouse’s problem!!

When Mr Patel showed us what he’d bought for the experiment we all thought we were just going to watch a film and drink Coke (diet of course – all part of a healthy, balanced diet) and eat Mentos to ensure fresh breath. Who knew we could use them to create an explosion of liquid – Mentos in Diet Coke – we’ve never seen Mr Patel run so fast. We put Mentos in Diet Coke to see if more or less Mentos would create a bigger ‘geyser’. We also had different volumes of Diet Coke to see if more Coke caused a bigger explosion.

If you can’t tell, we’ve also been working on using brackets for parenthesis in Literacy!!
