Making Butter

3rd class had great fun making butter. We poured cream into jam jars and working together we had to shake the jar for 10 to 15 minutes. We investigated each jar and noticed that the yellow solid lump was butter and the white liquid was buttermilk. Take a look at the photos to see the great effort the children made and our final results.





This week we learned about sound. We know how sounds are made, how they travel and we can even tell you how our ears work. We investigated how sounds waves travel, made string telephones and designed and made our own musical panpipes. Some facts that we learned about sound include the speed of light is faster than the speed of sound, sound needs air to travel and sound travels better through solid objects than through air. Take a look at some of our pictures below.
