Focused Areas of Learning – Sciences – Humpty Dumpty had a great fall!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS *

The Planets class loved our Humpty Dumpty themed science eggs-periment! We had to choose a material to place inside our zip lock bag that we thought would keep Humpty Dumpty safe.

We predicted whether the egg would stay whole or crack before each “fall” and then reported our findings.

We had lots of fun!

The Planets class looked closely at the Willowbank school staff. We matched a range of staff photographs (using colour and black and white images).

We also went on a “hide and seek” hunt around the class to find a range of school staff, then we drew a line identifying the staff name to the correct photograph.

We also discussed where we would find certain staff members – would it be in the school office, a classroom, the dinner hall etc.

Focused Areas of Learning – Partnership for the Goals – Team Working Challenge

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS *

The Planets class enjoyed a team building challenge. We set Levi 15 seconds to build a tower using 20 blocks. He found this very tricky and kept running out of time.

He decided to ask True to help. They still ran out of time. Then Chloe offered to help too. The tower was getting bigger but they were still running out of time.

Mrs Vernon, Miss Jones and Mrs McInally all helped too and finally with the help of a team, we beat the timer and built the tower of 20 blocks.

Focused Area of Learning – Eco – Sustainable Cities and Communities

The Planets class looked closely at a range of vehicles that we would see around towns and cities. We read a Giglets story called “People who help us” and spoke about emergency vehicles.

We also sorted a range of transportation into categories showing wheels or no wheels.

Finally, we sorted items into transport we would find in land, sea or air.
