The children observed two experiments with materials that involved chemical reactions that created new materials.When you mix warm milk with vinegar you create a new material called casein plastic. When you mix vinegar with bicarbonate of soda you create carbon dioxide.
Justine, a volunteer for CAFOD, spoke with the children today about the plight of refugees in the world. They had to imagine they had to leave their homes quickly with only the items they could carry. But as they travelled they had to make tough decisions and some items were lost or damaged. The children worked well together and soon realised that refugees had difficult lives.
