In Chemistry we learnt that air is made up of Oxygen 17% and Nitrogen 78% and did an experiment that showed how hard it is to swash air using water and food die. When we burnt a candle the oxygen in the air was burnt up and meant the water level rose in our air tight container over water so the water was higher on the inside than outside! That looked strange. We also mixed two compounds together (manganese dioxide and hydrogen peroxide) which reacted together to produce lots of oxygen gas and when we lit our tappers and blew them out and places them in the test tubes they relit with a bright flame. It was fun and beautiful. We also learnt that when nitrogen gas gets very cold (-200 degrees centigrade) it freezes stuff.
The weather has been changeable and this is the first time it has rained at Southstoke. The yurt is lovely and warm and the front room a great space too so when the rains pours we are happy and dry.
