Deuchainn Saidheans

Tha sinn ag ionnsachadh mu theann-stuthan, lionntan is gasaichean ann an saidheans an-dràsta.   Dh’atharraich sinn lionn gu teann-stuth san deuchainn seo ‘s bha e gu math blasta cuideachd.  Seo an deuchainn ma bhios sibh airson a dhèanamh a-rithist aig an taigh.

We are learning about solids, liquids and gases in science.  We changed a liquid into a solid in this experiment and it was also very tasty.  I have attached the experiment if you want to try it again at home.

Changes of State Experiment: Make Ice Cream

Resources: (per group)

  • Ice cubes (sufficient to half-fill the larger bag)
  • 2 re-sealable plastic bags (1 small, 1 large)
  • 120g salt
  • 120ml milk
  • 20g caster sugar
  • 2.5ml vanilla essence
  • Spoon
  • Gloves

Safety note: The children are likely to want to eat the ice cream, so ensure it is made in hygienic conditions.

  1. Ask each group to pour the milk, sugar and vanilla essence into the small plastic bag and ensure it is sealed properly so that it cannot leak.
  2. Instruct the groups to place the ice cubes and salt into the large bag, then place the small bag into the larger bag and seal.
  3. Shake the bags vigorously for around 5 minutes. Note: Squeezing the bag repeatedly speeds up the process. The children may wish to wear gloves as the bag becomes very cold.
  4. Whilst the children are shaking the bag, discuss the factors that might affect the experiment, such as the handling of the bag and the quantities of ice, salt and other ingredients.
  5. Ask the groups to open the outer bag and carefully remove the inner bag, making sure they don’t get any of the salty water into the ice cream. Note: If it’s not ready, simply reseal the bags and continue to shake.

Explaining the Science

Placing a bag of ice around the ice cream mixture would make it cool, but the ice would melt before it was able to lower the mixture’s temperature sufficiently to freeze. Adding salt to the ice lowers the temperature at which it freezes. As the two substances mix, the water draws heat from the surroundings to dissolve the salt, causing a drop in temperature. With a drop in temperature, the milk cools more quickly and the temperature becomes low enough to freeze.

Inverness Provincial Mod 2016

I’m sure all who attended will agree that the Craighill children did brilliantly at the Inverness Mod.  Not only did they return with the cup and shield from the Action Song and the Folk Group but they all performed brilliantly in their individual competitions.  We are all very proud of them, not only for their successes in the competitions but more importantly for the fantastic effort they all put into preparing for the competitions.  We were also delighted with how well they all behaved on the day, being polite, patient and encouraging to others.  They were a credit to the school.  Big thank you to Mrs Jack for giving up her own time to prepare them.   Well done everyone!

I have attached a schedule showing the many fantastic results from the Individual competitions.
