Today, Larch class spent the afternoon exploring clay to create molds for plaster casting. This method provided a final effect of sculpting from stone or, in some cases, bones of the past! We had a great time and our final pieces reflected everyone's efforts and hard work! Well done Larch class! (Miss Mack)
Today we spent the day preparing a bake! Becoming mini-bakers was fantastic fun as well as full of math's skill application opportunities: Weighing, capacity measuring, adding, subtracting, dividing and multiplying! The scientific element was also incredibly interesting; watching the increase in dough size after proving was a real eye-opener. Who knew that yeast would respire and produce carbon dioxide so the dough would rise? Brilliant!
