In Room 11 we are  experimenting with many different things. We are focussing on  what we notice, what we think is going to happen and wondering about what might happen if …

Ice Ice Baby was an experiment and a game as well. We had to order a group of activities and then if that number came up on the dice we would have to carry out that activity for 10 seconds.  After we had completed this form Mrs Ogden brought out these giant ice cubes.

Check out the enthusiasm in these photos. Nothing like a bit of competition to add pressure to the testing.

Our Question:Which had the biggest impact on the melting of the ice? Squeeze and pass around.

Our ideas: Why might that be? Everyone had warm hands so the ice kept meeting a warm surface/ Some people can squeeze harder than others so when it got hard to squeeze we passed it on.
