Learning in Room 3

Nubaid is writing his pizza recipe. He remembered to use a full stop at the end of his idea.  Look at the yummy pizza he drew.

Asha and Alexa love to create things. Alexa made a pattern puppy.  She has been making repeating patterns at maths time. 

We do handwriting and skills work. 

Sim is following instructions to make a car. Rei can make transformers. He takes photos so we can make them too.

Science Week - Milk Mosaic

We put milk in a plate and dropped some food colouring in it.

We put some dish washing liquid on a cotton bud and dipped it into the milk.

The colours swirled away and made patterns and rainbows. The colours kept on moving by themselves.

Why does this happen ? 
The molecules of fat bend, roll, twist, and contort in all directions as the soap molecules race around to join up with the fat molecules. During all of this fat molecule gymnastics, the food coloring molecules are bumped and shoved everywhere, 

Science Week - Rolling Marbles

We rolled marbles by flicking the last marble. It stopped but the others kept rolling.

Science Week - Air Cannon

We banged the drum, then we got the air in our hair.
By Elisha

We banged the rubbish bin. My friends hair went up. When we banged the rubbish bin the candle went out.
By William

I hit the drum and it made the air come out. It made our hair blow. Me and Nubaid worked together.

Science Week - Run Away Pepper

We all had a fabulous learning time during Science Week, with lots of questions, investigations and experiments.

We put pepper and water and dishwashing liquid on a plate. It made the pepper run away because the pepper does not like it. The pepper can not get out.
By Ella L

We did some science. There was some pepper and some dish washing liquid on the stick. We dipped the stick in the water. The pepper ran away.
By Khami

We put the pepper in the plate of water. We put some dish washing liquid and the pepper went away. The pepper didn’t like the dish washing liquid.
By William

We put in pepper and water and dishwashing liquid. The pepper ran away because the pepper doesn’t like dishwashing liquid. The pepper can’t melt because it hates water. It goes to the sides.
