This week we have been learning about the story of Hansel and Gretel. As we have been learning about materials in science, we decided to carry out an investigation to find out which material would make the best edible cement in a house made out of fudge. We made walls of fudge using the following materials as cement: jam, treacle, icing sugar, honey and chocolate spread. We discussed the variable that we were changing (cement) and kept all other variables the same to ensure it was a fair test. We predicted that treacle would be the strongest but our investigation showed that in fact icing sugar would make the best cement!
