Having fun with flour

November 28, 2018

This week, Year 5 Science Club made playdough from a mixture of flour, salt and a few other ingredients.  When hot water was added to the mixture, the starch granules (carbohydrate) in the flour were to irreversibly changed and the mixture turned into a gooey, stretchy, mouldable dough.

We made our playdough more interesting by adding some colouring, flavouring and glitter.

We had fun being creative and moulding the playdough into  interesting shapes

Year 2 – A Big Green Adventure

This week the children in year 2 have been sharing many important environmental issues through their production.  The children have worked really hard and performed their show 4 times this week.

What amazing actors they are!  We hope you all enjoyed watching, thank you for supporting your children in learning their lines, songs and providing the fantastic costumes.

Have a wonderful, home learning free weekend.

Tooth-friendly snacks

November 21, 2018

We know that sugary snacks are bad for our teeth, but did you know that if food contains acid it can also damage teeth by dissolving away the layer of enamel on the outside.  Quite a lot of tasty snacks are made using natural acids such as lemon juice to make them taste tangy and fizzy, so it is useful to know which ones are going to be the worst for your teeth. This week, Year 5 Science Club looked at some favourite snacks to see which ones contain acid and which ones don’t.

Testing the snacks

We used a special coloured liquid (made from boiled up red cabbage) which turns pink when there is acid in the food and stays blue when there isn’t any acid there.

Foods are tested and sorted

These ones are the best snacks for your teeth

The most tooth-friendly snacks were carrots, salted crisps and sugar-free polo mints.  They didn’t contain any acid, and also had very little sugar. So these are the best to nibble on in between meals.

Lots of acid in these fizzy sweets

The worst snacks that we tested were Fizzy Cola gummies and Tangy Rainbows.  They contained lots of sugar and lots of acid. Disaster for your tooth enamel!

But we also found that oranges contain some acid. So they are not a good choice of food to snack on although they are a good healthy food to have as part of your main meals.
