Roll up, roll up and learn about materials!

Year 5 have been learning about materials and their properties and were challenged with discovering the best material to use when making a costume for a circus performer, taking into account necessary qualities such as flexibility, breathability and flammability of materials.  Mr Reid used his skills as a fire eater and fire breather to demonstrate the flammability of different materials and liquids and the information Year 5 discovered was put into their science display. We stress that Mr Reid (pictured above) is fully trained and certified to work with the materials used in the demonstration - under no circumstances should anyone who is not trained attempt to copy his display or play with fire or flames.
