In class our topic was science and we were doing a lot of good experiments and we made lava lamps. We tried to see what materials would dessolve in water. The materials were sand ,salt ,cocoa powder and veg oil.
These are test tubes we have been using them for the materials.
We also used snap and fix to see if we could get electricity to go round a circuit to set off an alarm ,fan and a light bulb.

On wednesday the 23 of April 2014 both primary 6 clasess went to a crickwt festival in melrose near the hospital. A cricket coach called Rory came in and showed us how to play cricket.We were put into teams of eight and played lots of matches. After all the matches we all got cricket certicates they were really cool.
This is our very first post we have been learning about science lately. We have been using all sorts of materials.We have been learning about what happens when we mix different materials together. In one experiment we added water and oil to flour ,sugar,sand,coco powder even salt. We found out that some materials dissolved, some floated to the top and some sank to the bottom.
