After lots of hard work, we had an amazing time errupting our volcanoes. Our whole class smells of vinegar now. We mixed together bicarbonate of soda with washing up liquid and vinegar, the different items all had a reaction together, which resulted in an explosion.
Year 6 Volcanoes, by Mrs Knibbs
Date: 3rd Feb 2017 @ 11:50am
For the last week, we have been designing a 3d volcano. The materials we used were as follows:Paint (a lot of it); newspaper and kitchen roll; a plastic bottle and tape. We have been screwing the newspapeer into balls and sticking them together with PVA glue around the plastic bottle. Then we covered it with kitchen roll. After that, we painted it with either grey, brown or black paint for the base colour. We then dry brushed, which is one of the new techniques we used, and highlighted the parts that stuck out giving it a more realistic touch. We then made it drip with red and yellow paint for the lava. This has been a very fun experience and we hope to do it again. Report written by Jack Walker, Noah Negus and Ellis Statham Year 6.

Year 6 Super Tasters, by Mrs Knibbs
Date: 26th Jan 2017 @ 11:14am
Today we did a science experiment to find out, who in class is a super taster. We used blue food colouring as it does not stick to tastebuds, then we counted the number of tastebuds we each have. It was really fun and interesting testing how well you taste. I think that doctors could carry this out. Report written by Jacob Cowling Year 6
