This week we marked science week.  We had great fun with a range of interesting experiments.  We started the week by making butter with the junior room.  We had pots of cream at varying temperatures – cold (from the fridge), room temperature and warm (by the radiator).  By vigorously shaking the cream we turned it into butter and buttermilk.  We tested our butter on some scones and it was lovely!  Later in the week we had ‘The Cracker Challenge’.  We had to eat as many cream crackers as possible without taking a drink.  The winner was Leah with 34 crackers.  At yard time we tried the ‘Mentos volcano’.  We mixed Mentos into Diet Coke and watched the reaction from a safe distance.
