Life Education Visit

This week, we were visited by Harold, who helped us to learn all about eating HEALTHY!

We learnt about how our digestive systems work, what our body needs to be healthy, the different food groups and what they provide us and how to read the labels on food to identify what is healthy for us and our families.

We loved it and are using all this new knowledge to make healthy eating choices!

Making Bread...

Today we made BREAD! Just like in our Story "Who is the Thief?", we became bakers and made some delicious, tasty bread.

We worked in small groups and had to read the recipe very carefully. We kneaded the bread together then we had to wait for it to rise. It was a long process but the bread was worth the wait.

We enjoyed eating it with some marmite, jam and butter. It was a great afternoon tea treat.

Fantastic Forces - Balloon Rockets

We have been learning about different types of forces, such as push, pull, air resistance and rotation. Today, we made balloon rockets and then explored different resistance that would slow down or speed up the rocket. It was a lot of fun and we learnt heaps about resistance. The rockets worked best when the string was on a straight, taut line. The rockets didn't work as well when they had to go up hill on the string.
