Get down, get low, get out!

We have been learning about Being "Fire Wise" with the New Zealand Fire Service. Here we are practising getting down, getting low and getting out. This will help us survive if there is a smoky fire at home.

Life Ed

We have been visiting Harold the Giraffe recently. He has been teaching us how to be a good friend, and how to be a "bucket filler".

We read the book "Have you filled a bucket today?" We talked about what we could do and say to fill each other's buckets.

Science experiment - How much sugar is in different drinks?

We looked on the back of different drink bottles to see how much sugar is in them. We found out that 1.5 litres of 7 up has over 150 grams of sugar in it. Crazy! We also looked at what we were left with after we evaporated all the water from a  bottle of coke. It didn't look very nice!

Autumn Poems

On Friday we went outside to roll around in the leaves. We used our senses and tried to write what we could see, hear and feel. Here is our class poem we all wrote!

Autumn leaves do cartwheels on the grass.

They twirl like tornadoes.

They sound like the angry wind.

They feel spiky like a hedgehog.
