Investigating reactions

Yesterday pupils at Harlescott were exploring chemical reactions in science. We mixed bicarbonate of soda and vinegar together. Look what happened to the balloon! We also mixed PVA glue, boric acid and bicarbonate of soda to make our own slime. We mixed mentos with diet coke and watched the reaction as carbon dioxide formed.

Chinese New Year

Today is our annual celebration of Chinese New Year. This year is the Year of the Rat. We have been making some Chinese themed crafts. We also had our Chinese feast and tried Chinese food using chopsticks!
