Pesky popcorn problems

Today we tried to cook popcorn by using a candle. It didn’t go quite as well as it could’ve done. The positive view would be that nobody burned themselves and we didn’t set light to the school.

Thank you Rayah for your encouragement but I think that I have to accept that we won’t get rich with our ‘popcorn by candlelight’ business. In the end we had to rely on electricity to get the job done. Still, it was a lot of fun trying.

I think we found out plenty of important things though. Ben proved that he is a very able scientist. He has great knowledge but more importantly, he has plenty of questions.


You’ve got me thinking like a scientist Ben. Perhaps we just need a bigger candle or possibly a blowtorch. May be we could use a flamethrower or hire a helpful dragon. Hmmm …I’ll see what I can do.

I’m looking forward to next week. Hope you are too.

Be good, be safe and be here on Monday.

  1. Hi Mr Moore,
    I wish I was there so I could see your faces.
    It would be funny to see Ben as a scientist!

    On a scale of 1 to 10 how is Megan’s behaviour?
