St Johns

Yesterday Room 16 went to the art room to see a lady named Olivia and she took off her work time and came to Summerland Primary. She works at St Johns.Olivia taught us how to ring the ambulance and how to wrap a bandage around a kid or teenager. We even played a game and we had to look at pictures and do actions when Olivia put up the pictures. At the end of it we got given freshly made apples.

On Thursday 18th August Olivia from St Johns came in and taught us all about what to do when there is an emergency & what number to call!
It was my favourite bit of the day! She taught us how to bandage people up(we even got to bandage up a buddy!)Our class was so LUCKY we all got a bag with a magnet, pencil & sticker!

Sizzling Science

Yesterday Natasha came in to our class. Natasha is a scientist. She teaches at highschool. She brought in pieces of metal,some coins and two liquids. The aim for the lesson was to see chemical changes. We did some predicting. We observed that the pieces of metal were dissolving in the an acid. The coins were getting cleaner in the vinegar and lemon juice. The two liquids put together made a solid. We learnt a coin is made out of copper metal. A liquid can be an acid. By Brendan

Yesterday Natasha came in to our sizzling class. Natasha has a job that is a science teacher. She works at a highschool. She brought in two liquids in some containers,  10c coins that were dirty, little pieces of copper, metal, lemon juice and vinegar. We got a container of juice or vinegar, we put the coin in and then after a while there was no dirt  on them anymore. Then we got a container of acid  and put the piece of metal in and then it just disappeared. And we put two liquids together and it turned into a solid. They were all chemical changes. By Abbey

Hello from Mrs Boric

Hi Room 16. I hope you are enjoying your school holidays! Riley and I are enjoying doing lots of resting and relaxing!!
I hope you are continuing to read and practise your maths knowledge in the holidays. Check out these great websites I came across..

Its been pretty cold hasn't it? I woke up one freezing, frosty morning to find that this beautiful spider web had been created on the tree by our porch. It just shows that even the cold weather doesnt stop spiders from working!

Enjoy the rest of your holidays and I will see you on Monday.

Love from Mrs Boric
