We have been investigating the list of criteria Santa sent us for his Christmas decorations.  Here we are busy at work sorting decorations.  Feel free to pop into our classroom to see what we have learnt!

Guess what!!!

Today Mrs Peck got a package from Santa asking her to deliver all the Junior classes a special letter!

The letter made us a special offer.  If we make some decorations, Santa will deliver us a tree to hang them on!

We are so excited!

Watch this space for more developments!

Milk Magic

This is an experiment we did at school today...

1.  We got a bowl of milk.

2. We put a drop of blue, red and yellow food colouring in the milk.

3. We put a drop off dish washing liquid in the middle of the bowl.

4.  We watched what happened.  It was pretty cool!

Rescuing Rapunzel

Over the last few weeks, as part of our Inquiry Unit based on fairy tales, we have been trying to rescue Rapunzel.  She has been trapped in a tower in our classroom!

We brainstormed lots of ways to rescue her.  We then made a plan of our idea and used our plan to make a model.  Along the way we self assessed our progress.

These are photos of our models. 

Feel free to pop in to Lc 3 to see more of our thinking and problem solving!
