Science Experiments

This term we have been going crazy with science experiments! We have been doing demonstrations over the couple of weeks so that each child can choose one to do for their Science Fair. Students will be split into groups and will choose one of the demonstrations we've done with their group explain how they're going to turn the demonstration into a fair test (by changing one of the variables). Students will be working on their Science Fair during class on weeks 6 and 7.

Hannah's Dry Ice Experiment

At the end of Term 1 Hannah brought in some dry ice to show the class what happens when you mix Dry Ice (CO2) and warm water together. The class loved the reaction as the clouds of fog filled the air.

Swimming



On Friday Room 3 went swimming for the first time this year as part of the 'Field of Dreams' swimming programme. The class were assessed and put into ability groups. Next time they will be taught swimming skills focused on their ability level. The children thoroughly enjoyed going to the pools and they can't wait until next Friday when they get to go again! A big thank you to all the parents who will be helping with supervision over the next 6 weeks, without you we will not be able to participate in such a wonderful opportunity.

Cross Country Day

Last Friday we had our school cross country. At first the weather wasn't looking so good with heavy rain and thunder storms but by morning tea time the clouds had cleared and the sun was shining!

Well down Room 3 for your amazing effort! 












Well Done Hannah and Dillon for coming 2nd and 3rd place!
