Robins Class science week day 3: Goldilocks and the Three Bears
The children talked about what makes good porridge and decided that plain porridge didn't taste very interesting. We then added lots of different ingredients to bowls of porridge, including sugar, syrup, tomato ketchup, garlic, salt, curry powder, gravy and even chilli!! The children predicted what each ingredient would do to change the porridge's appearance, texture and flavour. Although some of the results were easy to predict (no one was a fan of chilli porridge or garlic porridge!), others surprised us: Jessica enjoyed curry porridge and the tomato ketchup porridge bowl was scraped clean! Apologies to Lapford parents if children now ask for ketchup porridge each morning!
