Comic Relief Cake Capers!

We took some time to learn about how some children are not as fortunate as they are, so we decided to help. To raise money for Comic Relief Year 1 made cakes to sell to the parents. Through following the instructions and getting a bit messy measuring out the ingredients some marvelous, scrumptious cakes were made.

Year 1 were explored a range of ways to balance using different body parts, as well as the number of body parts used to balance. Check out Chance, Callum and Sophie showing off some tremendous ways to balance.

Some tasty Science Investigations!

After finding that Paddington liked to have biscuits with his tea Year 1 decided to find which biscuit would be best for him to dunk in his tea. After setting up the investigation the children kept a close watch on what was happening to the biscuit when put in the tea (milk).
