We were singing and dancing!

In Science and Technology, we were investigating ramps. We chose an object in the room and we had to find out if it can slide or roll.

Our next investigation was to see if it rolls or slides further when the ramp is higher. We compared the two ramps.

In Mathematics:

Is it full, empty, half full or nearly full?

Term 2 Week 6

What a fabulous few weeks we have had!

In Science and Technology this week, we went to N1 for the Body Show. Mr McMullen and Mr White came with lots of interesting things to show us about how our body works.

Mr McMullen showed us ‘Anna’. We could see right inside her body.20160523_100010

Mr White talked to us about our bones. They help our body to stay up straight otherwise we would be just like a bean bag- all floppy!

Mr McMullen said that our brain is protected by the skull.20160523_100721

Mr White talked to us about our muscles. He has HUGE Muscles! Our muscles help us to move.

We talked about our lungs. They are just like a big balloon. The air goes in and out.

In English, we are learning  that authors create a setting to tell us the ‘where and when’ of the story.

We drew all of the things that we would see at a party on balloons.

On Friday when we were in the Kindy Triangle, Mrs Belling had some tiny little chickens that she had just shown to the Playgroup children. They were so cute. We got to hold them. Some tried to get away.
