Year 4 have been keen to keep their tea warm during our science topic ‘Keeping Warm’.

We tried to insulate a cup of tea for homework. Some children brought in their models to try.

Mme La Croix poured in the hot water (90 degrees) at the start of the lesson. We measured it again at the end.

The results are (degrees Celsius):

Milli- 38, Hema- 35, Zara- 50, Ellie- 55 and Henry M- 49.

Very close, but we think having a lid certainly makes a difference. (Ellie’s has the silver lid at the front.)

Well done everyone for putting extra effort into your homework tasks.
