This half term we have been doing coursework. The experiment that was chosen was adding an indigestion tablet to acid and counting the bubbles that were produced.
Difficulties included – no decent response with 0.5M acid, but far too many bubbles with 1M.
– students couldn’t count the bubbles fast enough, even over 15 sec. In some cases they couldn’t count high enough!

You may remember that I went to find a number of Gromit statues back in 2013.
Well, now there’s a range of Shaun the Sheep ones, raising money and awareness for the same good cause, supporting children in hospitals. Only this time, the trail is bigger. Much bigger. There are 50 sheep in London at the moment, with a further 70 due to appear in Bristol at the beginning of July.
I went to London last weekend, with a group of wonderful teachers, the majority of whom I have met on twitter, and most of them I had previously met in real life too. We had a fantastic day, walking around London, enjoying the sites and hunting for sheep. It was great to switch off and be me again for a short while, not worrying about exams, results and the pending school move….There were also enough of us that there were lots of people to talk to as the (very long) day progressed. Apps downloaded and phones in hand we managed to collect 45 of the 50 sheep over the course of the day.
Here are some of my favourite photos that I took
The prompt for this week was ‘pink’
I rushed around the house, gathering discarded clothing from as many rooms as I had, aware that I also had a train to catch. Why did I always leave everything until the last minute? Had I got up earlier I could have done the housework properly, put the washing on and had time for breakfast.
As it was, the only thing I had time to do was shove the washing in the machine and turn it on before dashing out of the door.
Returning home some hours later, I was shocked to discover that all my whites had turned pink! That’ll teach me.
