What a busy day it has been! We spent our afternoon constructing volcanoes that we will use to investigate chemical reactions when they erupt. It has been a very messy but enjoyable day…heres a sneak peek at our 3D volcano models.
One group even added a side vent on their volcano to view the reaction inside the volcano from-how clever!
We will keep you updated on our volcanic eruptions.
Yesterday we spent our morning at the Museum for ‘Volcanoes: Seconds from Disaster’ workshop, linking to our topic work studying the impact of natural disasters on people and the environment. We were all given a specific role as a scientist, member of government or a member of the public to assume. Then we had to investigate and discuss what our plan of action would be in preparation for a volcanic eruption. Thankfully, our members of government took the scientists advice and evacuated the members of public in time!
The kids enjoyed a very competitive game of cricket in the sunshine, practising their bowling skills.
We’re taking advantage of the gorgeous weather at the moment and decided to take our coordinates lesson outside. We were reminding ourselves of what we know by playing a game of connect four… with human counters!
Thank you to Mrs Anderson for coming into our class yesterday to do a relax kids session. We learned about the importance of sleep, how to wake up our brains and we made bead bracelets that can be used as part of our mindful breathing exercises! The kids loved it!
