Welcome back

What a busy news circle, it sounds like everyone had lots of fun over the holiday.

This week we played a bit of a gusssing game, using only our sense of touch to try and work out what each object was. Do you think you could have worked them out?

Most people got them right, even working out what might be inside the tin.

We also had a go at making our own slime to play with. When it works you get a stretchy squishy ball a bit like silly putty.  There are lots of recipes on the internet, you can even add colour and glitter for even more fun. We stuck to a basic mix of glue and laundry liquid. A bit of research shows that Aldi's own brand has the right mix of chemicals to make the slime work.

We learned that it really needs PVA glue to work though, the test batch with PVA worked really well but the new bottle of white glue never quite set in the same way.
