We are learning to use hand spans

In Room 8 we have just begun a unit on 'Measurement'. We started off by talking about all the different jobs that require measurement and how it is used in each job. We then made own own individual hand spans so that we can measure different items around our classroom. In order to get our students to appreciate the brilliance of standard units, we need them to work with non-standard units like hand spans. Let the learning journey begin!

Milk & Dishwashing Liquid Experiment

Ava is having a blast seeing what happens when milk is mixed with dishwashing liquid. The movement in the container is fascinating! 

Science Experiments in Room 8

We used the video application to record the experiment in action. We found out that the dishwashing liquid brings the fat in the milk together, which pushes the food colouring away.

Not to give out details!

We have just completed a unit around 'Internet Safety'. We discussed many aspects of being safe in the online world. We tied up our unit by making some 'Puppet Pals' to illustrate what we have learnt. Here Mason and Aidan are showing the importance of stopping and thinking before they enter their details online. Mason is the child and Aidan is the dad. Good job boys!
