Focused Areas of Learning – Science – Exploding Snowmen!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS *

The Daisies class had great fun with our science experiment today. We decorated zip lock bags with snowmen faces. We added 3 teaspoons of baking soda to the centre of a piece of tissue paper and wrapped it up. We placed the tissue paper parcel in the bottom of the ziplock bag. Finally, we added a cup of vinegar and then had to be very quick to zip our bag up!

We observed the zip lock bag filling with air and puffing out. We absolutely loved this!

Focused Areas of Learning – Whole School Projects – Snowman Lantern Head

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS *

The Daisies class had a special challenge where we were to turn a paper lantern into a snowman.

We did some paper mache with a balloon and string to make a snowman body and decided to use sweets to make our snowman face.

We hope you like our creation! These will we hanging in the main atrium during our Christmas displays.

Focused Area of Learning – Eco – Sustainable Cities and Communities

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS *

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.
