Lava Lamps

                                                                 Lava Lamps! 



We made lava lamps.  First we mixed food colouring and water in a bottle.


We added oil next. We could see that the density of oil is lighter than water so it floated on the water.

Next we added bicarbonate of soda and watched the bubbles form as the chemicals reacted.

Volcanoes

 

Today we made volcanoes!

First we made playdough to make the volcano. We added red and green food colouring to make them look more realistic.









When we had our volcanoes made we went outside for the eruptions! We mixed water, baking soda, food colouring, washing up liquid and vinegar to make a chemical reaction!

Maths Week fun!

  We played a maths game in PE! We had a fun relay where we collected maths questions and had to place them on the board over the correct answer. The winning team was the one who completed the board first!







We went on an outdoor maths challenge. We had problems to solve in groups using maths in the environment.
