Today we did a quick science experiment using ginger beer, a raisin and a glass. We poured some ginger beer into the glass then we dropped a raisin into the ginger beer. We waited a few minutes and then the raisin popped up to the top of the ginger beer and stayed there for a few seconds; it fell back down again then we waited a few more minutes and the same thing happened. But after that it didn't move again. I reckoned that experiment was pretty cool. It was my favourite experiment we had done so far at school. This term we have been learning about science and in week eight the school will do a science display where everyone makes their own science experiment and puts them on display.
On Monday first day of week three ,Arrowsmith started swimming lessons . I am in level three group one and yesterday I started to do breaststroke kick .
Swimming is important because if you fall off a boat and you don't have a life jacket on you need to be able to swim back to shore or back into your boat .
On Friday we had the cross country at Tinwald School. First were the year six boys competitive, next were the year six girls competitive and next it was me, I was puffed half way through but I did come eighth place in the end.
I am looking forward to the cross country; I like running and really want to come in the top five for the competitive year five boys. I hope the weather is nice because I really, really don't like running two kilometres in the rain.
