Year Five have been exploring the rainforest this term. As part of our work, we have started to find out about resources and how they are traded. We decided to find out about the ingredients in lemonade. As a science experiment we found out how lemonade is made and then tested what the effect of reducing the amount of sugar content in lemonade would be on the taste. Once we made the lemonade, we all tasted it to see if reducing the sugar content made it less tasty. In general we did find that too much sugar made it too sweet for us and too little made it too bitter for us. We preferred the 'Goldilocks' lemonade - with just the right amount of sugar!  

Now we are planning to make lots more try to sell it to help people cool down in the summer sun. Watch this space for an update on our enterprise project.
