Find Sums

Today Allanah showed us Find Sums on her iPod Touch. We took turns to play the game and then took a screen shot of our last game with the best score. You had to match up all the sums that add to ten but you could put other totals in there as well.
Maxwell managed to solve all the sums in the quickest time and grab a screenshot.

QR Code Treasure Trail

Today we had a fun treasure trail around the school. We had try and find clues using Allanah's iPod Touch and QR Codes. This part of the trail lead us to the shed.
We had to find the next clue by scanning the QR code. When we scanned it another clue came up. We then took off to where the clue told us to go.
When we found the QR code we took a photo to prove that we were in the right place. In this photo I am over in the hall.
It was really fun apart from when we couldn't find the QR code. Isaac, Mika and Charlie won the treasure hunt. They got it done in the quickest time.


In our maths lesson today we did some cutting to see if we could work out which nets would actually make a net. This activity revises that. Can you get eleven nets without making a mistake?

Science Fair

Bryn, Frank and Charlie worked on this project. We are proud of our work because it is interesting and has lots of detail in it. We learnt that acid turns the litmus paper red. We found that tap water and milk had the most acid in it.
Rhiannon, Quinten and Lindsay learnt about cleaning stains and what best product removed black currant juice stains. We found out that bleach cleaned the stain the best and shampoo and washing powder hardly cleaned the stain at all.
Zahra, Livi and Sophie A had fun doing this experiment. Our question was. 'What stops apples from going brown?" We found out that lemon juice works the best and white vinegar doesn't work at all.
Maxwell, Mika and Issac found out that wool burnt the fastest out polystyrene, cotton and denim materials. We finished first.
Ewan, Hannah and Kara worked hard on this project. We found out the Handee towels are the most absorbant. Viva was the least absorbant.
Holly, Sophie C and Georgia tried to find out which liquid freeezes the quickest. We found out that orange juice froze the quickest. Lemonade and Coke took the longest time to freeze. We think this is because sugar doesn't freeze well.
