This week in maths we are learning about money quantities, sorting, and sharing.

We are pleased to report the scarecrow has a new face, so hopefully now, instead of the birds eating the scarecrow, he will scare the birds away from the gardening plots


This week we planted lavender, and pumpkins.

Over the past few weeks we have been learning about the Chinese New Year. 2015 is the year of the Sheep (Ram)
We made paper lanterns, dragon puppets and lucky decorations, had a go at writing our name in Chinese, as well as making a story book about why the Chinese New Year is called "The Great Race"

Today in Infants we joined Manorbrook Montessori  and made a Volcano erupting experiment
 
What you'll need:
  • Baking Soda (make sure it's not baking powder)
  • Vinegar
  • A container to hold everything and avoid a big mess!
  • Paper towels or a cloth (just in case)
 
Instructions:
  1. Place some of the baking soda into your container.
  2. Pour in some of the vinegar
  3. Watch as the reaction takes place!
 
What's happening?
The baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is a base while the vinegar (acetic acid) is an acid. When they react together they form carbonic acid which is very unstable, it instantly breaks apart into water and carbon dioxide, which creates all the fizzing as it escapes the solution.
For extra effect you can make a realistic looking volcano. It takes some craft skills but it will make your vinegar and baking soda eruptions will look even more impressive!
