To end our topic of CHANGE we had a master chef cook-off. Each class made something.

Room 7 made hokey pokey to show that..... the baking soda releases all of its gas (CO2) and makes a chemical reaction with the sugar and golden syrup. That makes it bubbly and frothy.

Here is the recipe:

Put 5 tablespoons of sugar into a pot.

Put 2 tablespoons of golden syrup into the pot.

Out the pot on a low heat to dissolve the sugar.

Boil on a low heat for 4 minutes.

Put one teaspoon of baking soda into the pot.

Stir quickly and spoon out onto a greased tray.
