Tuakana Teina

Tuakana Teina.

Yesterday, Room 8 had Tuakana Teina day, Tuakana Teina
day means younger to older. We had Tuakana Teina day with
Room 3 and some students in Room 5.
We made earthquake proof houses.

Firstly, we were given a piece of paper for planning our houses.
We wrote down what we were going to use to
improve from a basic house.

Secondly, we all grabbed a milk box, to make our basic house.
We added windows and a door. We tested our basic houses on the
richter scale first.

Lastly, Ms Gormly grabbed all the small equipment like rubber bands,
elastics, cotton balls, clips,  and blocks. We used these things to improve
our basic house and make it an earthquake proof house.

WALT - Learn 

Boxing Feedback

These are the 3 boxing commandments.
I will have respect for myself, my coach, my peers and the sport of boxing.

I will have discipline to turn up to every boxing session and give my 100%...

I will not cause harm to others and only practice boxing in a safe
environment under the guidance of a coach.

I enjoyed learning how to box, with Pax. Thank you for teaching
us how to protect ourselves using boxing. I was very excited when we first started.
I would like to have more boxing sessions because I really enjoy doing boxing.

Making a chatterbox.

I was very curious about what we were making Tuesday morning.
What a surprise, we we’re making a chatterbox!

Firstly, Ms Bracey handed us a piece of paper
from a magazine and a pair of scissors. She told us to fold
it down and make a oblong.
We folded all the 4 the corners to the middle.
We flipped it around and folded another 4 corners again.

Secondly, my chatterbox opened and closed when I moved my fingers.
Ms Bracey also told us, that if you put it upside down it can be a lolly holder.

Lastly, we finally finished making our chatterbox.
We had fun and played with our chatterbox.

Magic Snow!

Magic Snow

What a surprise, we made magic snow! On Wednesday morning,
the students in Room 8 did a science experiment.

Firstly, Ms Bracey explained the history of magic snow.
The product of the magic snow is called polymer.
Polymer is mostly used by scientist.
WARNING, This product is not suitable for younger children,
under the age of 5.

Secondly,  after Ms Bracy explained, we followed her
instructions and got on with the experiment.
The materials we used was a packet of polymer,  
plastic cup that was transparent and ½ cup of cold water.

At last, we poured the packet of polymer into
the transparent plastic cup, then we poured the water into the same cup.
The polymer absorbed all the water, and made magical snow.
It grew so fast, that everyone squealed. It felt squishy and slimy.
