Term 3 - Week 6
In P.E. Mr Culbreth and Jack have been teaching us a dance based on Alice in Wonderland. We dance on Monday afternoons. I like the dance session because it is very creative.

Term 3 - Week 5
Today we took an adventure to 5 land. We took 5 cubes (seeds) and they became trees. Then we took 5 trees and they became woods.With 5 woods we made up forests. 1 group managed to make 1 forest with 11 trees left over ( 2 woods and 1 tree) and the other group made 3 forests with 1 wood left over. After that,we made a jungle,which is made up of 5 forests. We had 2 trees and 3 seeds ( cubes) left over.
It helped us with our mixed fractions and place value.

In Science Week we released a load of balloons. Maple Class were fortunate enough to get a reply!
Term 3 - Week 3 (Science Week)
During science week we launched rockets, did messy experiments, studied our finger prints, found forensic evidence, and visited the Science Fair. We really enjoyed the week, and our favourite part was making splatter paint art by dipping balls in paint and then throwing them at cardboard!
By Natalie and Bailey
We designed rockets for our class experiment and needed to think about three things; how well the rocket was made, aerodynamics, and weight. To make the rocket stay together when it was launched we needed everything to stay on, so we used cardboard and hot glue, which was very sturdy. Then for the aerodynamics we put on a nose cone. To make it weigh less we put less water in the bottle so it went higher. All of these worked stupendously well!!
On Tuesday 16th January 2018, in the afternoon, we did lots of little science activities. First we talked about what Forensic Science was. We found out that it is problem solving at a crime scene. Then we got to try and find out how to take a fingerprint off an object. After that we did ink fingerprints.

In maths today, we had strips of paper that measured 28cm. We measured and cut other strips to make

Term 3 - Week 2
We all love our book corner because it’s nice and cosy. We have teddies, blankets and cushions, and it’s like a nice cosy bed!
By Alicia and Summer
In maths we were divergent thinkers! In groups, we discussed how many different ways to make halves by folding paper. We found eight different ways!
