Being me!

This term we are celebrating individuality and what makes us all different and unique. We made self-portraits using. First we looked in a mirror to find out what colour eyes and hair we had to make our pictures look like us. All our pictures are different just like us!

Oozy Slime

We are learning about chemical changes for science this term. First we watched a video on how to make slime, we used a visual recipe to follow each step. When we added the borax and water to the glue we watched the liquid solidify. It was amazing! some of us didn't want to touch the slime and others loved the feeling of the slime oozing through our hands.

Pop Tennis Sucess

This term we have been going to the tennis club for lessons with our instructor Martin. All of the boys have made progress this term but Conrad in particular has amazed us all with his tennis skills. Here is a video of him playing a tennis with Martin. The concentration and hand eye coordination involved in tennis can be challenging. Well done Conrad!

Old and New at Motat

Last Friday we went on a trip to Motat to learn about "old and new" things. Our educator, Abby, took us to a room for us to explore lots of different items that were from the olden days. We dressed up in old clothing, we practiced writing with a quill, we played with old toys and different household items from the olden days. After exploring Motat we got to go on the tram, what a fun day we had.
