An Eggcellent Easter Hunt! 26-03-21

The 3rd Class Eggheads were so excited, that as soon as this egg hunt started, they scrambled!! They had so many egg puns, it's not even bunny.

 

Let's hope these Easter eggs are all they're cracked up to be.

 

All these Easter puns crack me up. That’s all for Easter Sunday, yolks.

Things are blowing up in Science!

We made our own Volcanos using baking soda and vinegar. A very messy experiment!

Their skills are really improving after just three workshops.  They've been practicing dribbling, shooting and keeping control of the ball.

We've also been talking about the idea of "Healthy Body, Happy Mind."  By keeping our body healthy we can feel happier and less stressed.  Basketball is a great exercise to keep us healthy, and it's fun, too.

Congratulations to Ms. Kildee's Class Pupils of the Week, Kindness Award Recipient and Super Green Human Being!!

Science: Exploring Forces

Ms. Kildee's class designed and carried out an experiment to test how two ramps placed at different heights would affect how far a toy car would travel.  We kept all our variables the same except the height of the ramps.  We also used our measuring skills to record how far the car went each time. The class did the test 5 times to be sure the results were consistent.  Our results were that the ramp that was placed lower made the car travel further--every time!

We've been 'Thinking about things' since we've been back at school!

Our Plant Experiment

We are conducting an experiment to test the needs of a plant.  We have planted bean seeds into several pots.  One pot gets sunlight and water, one gets only water, one only gets sunlight and one gets neither sunlight or water.  Finally one plant gets sunlight, water and gets read a story everyday. We've named that lucky plant Margaret. 

What do you predict will happen to each plant? 

Stay tuned to find out!

Stone Age Pottery

We made pinch pots inspired by our lessons about Stone Age people.  After the pots were shaped we carved in designs on them that were inspired by Stone Age art.
