We finished the space test early! We had to try and remember what we have leaned over this unit. There were many questions, some were hard, but most were easy.

Team Light Exam

Today in science we did the light exam in our teams. The exam consisted of questions about everything we have studied this term including lenses, mirrors, prisms, spectrum’s and refraction. The exam was relativley easy and working in teams made it quick and painless. I reckon our team did very well and we are confident we will achieve excellence.

Today we looked up close at leaves! There is a part of a leaf called a cuticle, It is waxy and keeps the leaf  damp. Then there is a part called the upper Epidermis, It is used for protection. After that there is a Palisade layer, this is where Photosyntheses happens. It is full of Chloroplasts which contains Chlorophyll. Then there is a spongy layer full of air gaps to let in Co2 + H20 and let out O2 + H20 out. Then Finally the Lower Epidermis that has tine holes called Stomata in the bottom.

Convection Currents

We used the smoke box, the fish tank with hot and cold, and paper dots in a beaker to see convection currents.


We heated test tubes which were white, silver and black to see which heated up the fastest. Then we turned on the infra-red light.
