Science Experiments

 This term we are conducting science experiments each Friday.  We have been working with Mrs Meikle, looking at the reaction between baking soda and vinegar.  We used the gases produced from this reaction to blow up balloons!  We used different sized bottles and noticed that the smaller bottles blew the balloons up more.  (The fire engine in the background was NOT at school because of our experiments!)

Wood Work

Room 1 have some new wood work tools.  We spent some time trying out the tools and figuring out what we could do.  Lots of us showed perseverance with our hammering and sawing.

Room 1 have been measuring using non-standard units.  We lay on the ground and marked how tall we are on the carpet with tape.  Jack and Bethany have measured their height using magnetic letters, rulers, sight words and pens.

Buddy Reading

During Term 3 the senior class are coming to visit us for Buddy Reading.  We all have a buddy who we can read with and have stories read to us.  We are doing this each day for 10 minutes after morning tea.
Please let us know if you're having trouble posting a comment.  We are trying to sort this out.

Room 1 blew bubbles and talked about who was in our bubbles during level 4 lockdown.  We wrote about what we enjoyed in our bubbles and what we missed.  Lots of us loved watching movies and missed playing with our friends.
