It’s over to you!

Year 5/6 class will be learning how to use their class blog this afternoon to create blog posts about books, films, games, sport and anything else they are interested in. They would love to know that they have an audience outside of the walls of their school. If you can spare a moment, please scroll down and leave them a quick comment telling them where you are and what you are up to. If you could include an interesting fact about your location that would be amazing.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!


My end of year recount by Mohammadnoorani

Basically is the year 2019 and it’s July 19th and I think you know what happens when it’s July 19th. So this year my teacher is Miss Pugh.  She is amazing and good at telling people what to do. She lets us watch movies and maybe just maybe she might let us go home on Friday without giving us learning log homework. Next year it’s Miss varley. My best friends are Deen, Riley, Mohammad Patel and Yahya. Miss Pugh might let us have a water fight today if we are sensible enough. So hope you enjoyed my recount of the last week of the school year.

Noorani out till next year’s Boys and girls.:-)

How to make slime by Leah

How to Make Slime

  1. Pour the glue  into a jar of a blow.
  2. Slowly stir the glue mixture into the bowl of borax solution.
  3. Place the slime that forms into your hands and knead until it feels dry. Don’t worry about the excess water remaining in the bowl.
  4. The more the slime is played with, the firmer and less sticky it will become.
  5. nto the jar. If you have a big bottle of glue, you want 4 oz or 1/2 cup of glue.
  6. Fill the empty glue bottle with water and stir it into the glue (or add 1/2 cup of water).
  7. If desired, add food coloring. Otherwise, the slime will be an opaque white.
  8. In a separate, mix one cup (240 ml) of water into the bowl and add 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of borax powder
  9. Have fun!



How Slime Works

Slime is a type of non-Newtonian fluid. In a Newtonian fluid, viscosity (ability to flow) is only affected by temperature. Typically, if you cool a fluid down, it flows more slowly. In a non-Newtonian fluid, other factors besides temperature affect viscosity. Slime viscosity changes according to pressure and shear stress. So, if you squeeze or stir slime, it will flow differently than if you let it slide through your fingers.

Slime is an example of a polymer. The white glue used in the classic slime recipe is also a polymer. The long polyvinyl acetate molecules in glue allow it to flow from the bottle. When polyvinyl acetate reacts with the sodium tetraborate decahydrate in borax, protein molecules in the glue and borate ions form cross-links. The polyvinyl acetate molecules can’t slip past each other so readily, forming the goo we know as slime.





Tips for Slime Success

  1. Use white glue, such as Elmer’s brand. You may also make slime using the clear or translucent school glue. If you use white glue, you get opaque slime. If you use a translucent glue, you get translucent slime.
  2. If you can’t find borax, you can substitute contact lens solution for the borax and water solution. Contact lens solution is buffered with sodium borate, so it’s basically a pre-made mixture of the key slime ingredients. Don’t believe internet tales that “contact solution slime” is borax-free slime! It’s not. If borax is a problem, consider making slime using a truly borax-free recipe.
  3. Don’t eat the slime. Although it isn’t especially toxic, it is not good for you either! Similarly, don’t let your pets eat the slime. While boron in borax isn’t considered an essential nutrient for humans, it actually is an important element for plants. Don’t feel bad if a bit of slime falls into the garden.
  4. Slime cleans up easily. Remove dried slime after soaking with water. If you used food coloring, you may need bleach to remove the color
  5. Feel free to jazz up the basic slime recipe. The cross-linking that holds the polymer together also helps slime hold mix-ins. Add tiny polystyrene beads to make the slime more like floam. Add pigment powder to add color or to make the slime glow under black light or in the dark. Stir in a bit of glitter. Mix in a few drops of fragrance oil to make the slime smell good. You can add a bit of color theory by dividing the slime into two or more chunks, coloring them differently, and watching how they mix. You can even make magnetic slime by adding some iron oxide powder as an ingredient. (Avoid magnetic slime for very young children, because it contains iron and there’s a risk they might eat it.)
    1. I’ve got a YouTube video of the slime showing what you will get if you use glue gel rather than white glue. Either type of glue works well.

Poems by Deen and Riley

WHEN you are old and grey and full of sleep
And nodding by the fire take down this book
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once and of their shadows deep
How many loved your moments of glad grace
And loved your beauty with love false or true
But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you
And loved the sorrows of your changing face
And bending down beside the glowing bars
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
