Recycling Week at Fusion- we ‘attempted’ to make our own paper using scrap paper! It was super simple, have a go and let us know how it goes!!
Step1- rip the paper to stamp size pieces
Step 2- soak the paper in a bowl
Step 3- whisk the paper until ir goes soggy and clumps together
Step 4- squash all the excess water out using a teatowel
Step 5- leave it in a warm place on baking paper to dry (it takes a few days!)
FATHERS DAY WEEK
Hygiene week. Today we did a science experiment where we tested different solids with soap to see which ones reacted. We tested pepper, salt, rosemary and grass.
We found that the solids quickly went to the side of the bowl when the soap was added. This is because the soap breaks down the surface tension of water and the surface tension changes!
