Potion and spells

This afternoon, in topic we learnt about irreversible and reversible changes. To start of the lesson we did an irreversible potion by mixing vinegar and milk together to make a modelling clay sort of like play dough. Then we got sorted into four groups two sets of three and two sets of four. On a sheet in our groups we had to fill out answer and predict what might happen most of us predicted it would foam fizz and erupt. We used jugs and spoons for our equipment. We put vinegar in pots and filled it up (1tsp) with bicarbonate of soda. The reaction happened and it erupted out of some jugs.

Fire talk

Today we had a fire talk and Caroline , the instructor,told us how to keep safe if there is a fire in our house. We also watched a couple of examples of how a fire could start. She said that even the tiniest things could set alight! Unbelievably they also go onto lakes and rivers to go and save someone. They help animals and people from houses that are set on fire. We were given a few activities to try and solve:

  • What do you have to have to start a fire.
  • In a house place the fires and try and find the quickest and safest route to get out.

We really enjoyed it!

Astonishing Art!

This afternoon in art we studied Vincent Van Gogh’s painting of starry night. We had to write down all the things we noticed about how he painted this picture. For example, he used bright colours, bold outlines and lots of detail. Following that, we had a go at designing our own starry night background with our own Harry Potter themed foregrounds. We used oil pastels and felt tips for our media. We all really enjoyed this art session and can’t wait to finish our masterpieces!
