Indian Food Tasting

Yesterday we enjoyed trying different foods that are grown and popular in India. We tried mango, onion bhajis, Poppadoms, mango chutney, nann bread and samosas. Some of us happily gobbled up the whole lot whereas others gave it a try, but decided they didn't like it. Mrs Hamm and I were very impressed that most of the children tried the food even though they weren't sure. A very yummy afternoon!

The Egg Drop Challenge

It is science week this week and in Pippin class we decided to carry out an investigation with a slight Spring link. We tested different materials to find out which one was best at protecting the egg. Most of us predicted that bubble wrap would be the best so we were surprised that rice was the best material. We had lots of fun smashing the eggs. :)
