The senior pupils are learning about the PH scale.

They made a universal indicator out of red cabbage and dyed their cloths, then they decorated them using an acid (vinegar) which turned it pink and a base which turned it blue (hand soap).

I think you’ll agree that these are pretty cool!

Science experiment in the senior room today:


Here we have six test tubes containing vinegar, lemon juice, water (the control), toothpaste, bicarbonate of soda and bleach.


We added red cabbage juice.


Each colour had a different reaction to our natural homemade red cabbage indicator. Acids turned red and bases turned blue.

On a nature walk today! Looking at trees growing around our school environment! We found beech, sycamore, ash and horse chestnut (the teachers found a little oak tree after school which we will show you tomorrow) lovely way to spend time with our friends
