Today we continued to investigate yeast. This time we looked at the natural sugars in our fruit. We learned that CO2 gases are released which help to inflate the balloon. As the yeast runs out of energy (sugar) the balloon deflates.
In the afternoon Class 2 went on a minibeast hunt and collected some wonderful creatures. They used their identification key to identify them. We then examined them more closely under the microscope.
Class 1 were investigating floating and sinking this morning through the context of ‘The Gingerbread Man’ story. The children were developing skills in science inquiry and developing scientific vocabulary, such as ‘dissolve’ and ‘disintegrate’. They couldn’t wait to check on their gingerbread men after swimming and were thrilled to find out there were some biscuits left to eat. Thank you Mrs Reid!
