What a wonderful class we have! Our science unit this term is all about geology and geomorphological processes. We have been studying the properties of rocks and soil. The students have enjoyed inspecting properties of a collection of volcanic basaltic, conglomerate metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. 6A Science Investigations 6A have been doing lots of experimenting with various combinations. This week we looked at combinations such as water and yeast; water and sugar; water, yeast and sugar and just sugar and yeast. We left these over night and came back to school with excitement to see what had happened to our different bottles. We discovered that the bottles with yeast and water had started to blow up our balloons a little bit. We then noticed that the bottle with yeast, water and sugar had blown the balloon up half way! Check out some photos of our experiment. STUDENT OF THE WEEK Week ending:25/1/18 (Wk 1 Term 1) PA: Shaylah for showing enthusiasm for learning and consistent On Track behaviour.
