In year 4, we have been learning about states of matter. Today we investigated gasses. We learned about how carbon dioxide was discovered by Joseph Priestly and how it is used to make fizzy drinks and fire extinguishers!
We wanted to discover which fizzy drink was the fizziest out of a selection of 4. To do this we weighed the drinks when they were fizzy, then we shook them 100 times until they were flat. After that, we weighed them again and worked out the difference in weight.
We found out that the cherryade was the fizziest as it had lost the most weight!
Thank you to Year 6 and Mrs Wilson for putting together a very good, and thought provoking assembly.
Y6 enjoyed a visit to Nissan where we had fun finding out about this local industry.
In preparation for Remembrance Day and the Centenary of World War 1, children in Year 6 did lots of preparation for their Remembrance Day assembly. Last week, they carried out interesting research on the local war graves near our school.
We are so proud of Claudia Jordan in Year 3, who (less than a year ago began trombone) has progressed from her red starter trombone to a full sized brass instrument. Claudia has made phenomenal progress and has joined the year 5 ensemble group. What an achievement! WELL DONE Claudia!
