We visited the worm farm and collected some worm poo. We mixed it with water and watered our vegetable garden. We have planted tomato, lettuce and cucumber. In the last two weeks our cherry tomato plant grew 25cm. We hope we have some tomato to eat before the end of the year.
November the 8th.
The Level 1/ 2 students had a blast at the Twilight Sports. Running, hitting, running, jumping and even more running. Everyone collected a ribbon or two and were in high spirits. Team spirits were high, enthusiasm and encouragement featured as teams worked hard to score points. What a great night!
This week we have been playing a board game all about facts and opinions. We then made an ipad with some apps to show we know the difference between a fact and an opinion.
This week we also played a Kahootz…all about the people in our class. It was fun and Mason came first.
I n 1/2D we have been learning how to write an explanation. We flew kites and researched how they work. Students then wrote about – What makes a kite fly?
Today the Year 1 and Year 2 students enjoyed Italian day. Students dressed up and showed off their creations during the parade.
During a multi age session the students listened to the senior students share some poems. We also enjoyed the STEM activity where we built our versions of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Waiter Races and the fabulous Magic Show with Luigi.
We are looking forward to pizza and watching the show.
Jillian visited and explained how glass is created. What a fascinating process it is to create the flat glass that is used for so many places in our lives. The students discovered the ingredients used and the time consuming and costly process involved in making glass.
We found out that the furnace is the size of our classroom. It has to be replaced every 15 years. It runs 24hours a day. 2000 workers are employed at the Float factory.
Thank you Jillian.
