We love singing this song in year 4 to help us to count in multiples of 8. Have a listen.
Is flat lemonade heavier or lighter than fizzy lemonade?
In science we have been learning about gases and we wondered if flat lemonade was heavier or lighter than fizzy lemonade. We carried about an investigation. We poured 100g fizzy lemonade into a cup. We waited for it to go flat then we weighed it again. It was lighter! We found out that gas has mass just like liquids and solids. We also learnt that carbon dioxide (the gas found in drinks) is actually a heavy gas compared to helium by looking at some balloons which were filled with different gases. Take a look at our photos.
We have learnt about the Viking board game hnefatafl (nef-a-ta-ful). We listened to the rules of the game and we noticed it's similar to chess. Take a look at these photos. You can find the game at http://www.homespunweb.co.uk/vikings/ .
