Everyone had a drink in school today (and pizza, as a thank you for our great effort with the Irish Drama). Some of the drinks spilled. We were wondering which paper can mop up spills the best. We wondered was it newspaper, paper hand towels, kitchen roll or delux paper roll from Mrs. Browne. We mostly guessed it was Mrs. Browne kitchen roll. We set up a little test to find out. We used strips of each paper, a dish, skewers and a cup of water with red food dye in it. We left the test soaking for a while, and watched the water being absorbed by the paper strips. We were right - the nice thick paper roll was the best, then the ordinary kitchen roll, then the paper towels, and lastly, worst of all for mopping up skills was newspaper. Now we know which to use when something spills in our class!
