Monday 5th November was our WOW day, Year 4 had great fun. During our WOW day the children made chocolate sparklers we all agreed they were delicious! We designed our own bonfire night skyline showing fireworks exploding and bonfires alight. We finished these off with some sparkly glitter for extra effect!
After break we were firework scientists and conducted our own experiment. using coke and Mentos we predicted how many Mentos we would need to make the coke explode. Once we made the coke explode we predicted what would happen if we added more Mentos how high could we make the explosion reach!
The fun continued in year 4 when we made our own chocolate apples, and added our bonfire themed sprinkles. The children did extremely well following the instructions to make chocolate apples.
The day finished by bonfire with Miss Latham in the wild area, toasting marshmallows and making smoares, Delicious!
During our Design Technology lesson this week, we made our own Guy Fawkes models. We used straw balloons and some old clothes to make them. We had great fun! What do you think of our finished Guys.
