How do you slow down a snow woman melting? Hmmm….Do you put a coat on her? Will it make her melt slower or quicker? Or will it not make a difference at all? We had a class discussion and we all voted whether putting a coat on her would make a difference. Most people voted that it would make her melt quicker because she would be warmer. One person thought it wouldn’t make a difference and two people thought it would make her melt slower.
We were all surprised to learn that the coat does NOT make the snow woman warmer. It just keeps her at the same temperature for longer!
We are having great fun for Science Week. Check out what we have been up to in Room 5 and 6!
We have had a busy start back after the break. We have been learning all about the different materials needed for the construction of houses. Today we became architects and got to design our very own home. We had to firstly decide what type of home we would build; a semi-detached, a detached, a bungalow, an apartment, a caravan, a cottage or a farm house. Then we had to decide what materials we would use; cement blocks, stone or bricks. We had lots of fun working with our buddies!
Then the real fun started and we began constructing our homes!
Check back next week to see how they turned out!
We have been having lots of fun in Room 6 getting ready for Halloween. We have been learning about the history of Halloween and lots of games that people play. We got to make slime which was really messy but really fun! Room 13 also came down to help us make spooky houses. Today we got to dress up and have our parade, we really enjoyed reciting our rhymes and song. Thanks to all the mums and dads who made it!
In Room 6 we have been busy learning about maps and how everything changes when you look at it from a different angle. We learned what an aerial view or birds eye view is. We got to draw our own aeriel maps!
