We continued our chemical reactions topic today by investigating slime. We carried out a fair test to discover whether using more glue makes the slime more bouncy. It definitely does! We also developed our report writing skills as we conducted the experiment.
Please could you bring in an empty playdoh or small tuperware tub on Wednesday. If you have extras please check on Teams Chat if these could be used by others in your class. Thank you!
On Wednesday it is also your stage party. You can wear your party clothes to school and should also bring a snack and drink to have during our party.
We have discovered a stage portrait dishtowel from 2017-2018 which was ordered by someone who was absent at the end of term 4. No one in the class has claimed it, if you think this is yours please let us know and we will send this home next week.
The Kirkhill Primary Technology House Challenge will be held next Friday (13th December). You have arranged your groups and discussed some ideas in class. You can use Teams to organise who is responsible for bringing in the resources you plan to use (junk modelling), but don’t give away any ideas!
