STEM

We looked at how to work co-operatively, making a plan.....generally listening to each other to reach a common goal.
We had the challenge of making the tallest tower from a single sheet of paper and making a structure that would hold the weight of a textbook.  We only had newspaper and sellotape!



Next we looked at corn......what a fascinating vegetable it is too.  





The end product is jolly tasty too!!

Bread Making

What better way to see yeast in action than making some bread!  Year 6s mixed, kneaded and baked a delicious batch of bread.....crusts tasty and reasonably light and fluffy in the middle (thanks to the co2 released).
A tasty way to spend in food tech!

Is It Alive?!
Organisms need some things to survive: H2O, O2, warmth, a food source.  Our science today investigated what happens when a food source (sugar) is added to yeast/omitted from the yeast water mixture.
Yeast is amazing!!
