This week was a very busy one! We started availll in reading, which means reading and watching subtitles on movies to help our fluency and we also learned how to draw eyes, lips, and noses for the art exhibition.
On Thursday at the south learning centre we learned
Billy's Owesome Glog!
how to use glogger to promote cyber saftey (THINK). We will be going back in week 8 for part 2 of the programme.
For all the parents that didn't get the notice for our art project, we need two clean tin cans, with the label intact if possible, and try to have it as large as possible. You'll see the end results at the Art Exhibition in week 10.
On wednesday room 18 will be doing chemistry so far we have made corny goo the instructions are below and over the next few sessions we will also be making green slime, milky plastic and fire extinguisher.
1 tbl spoon of water
2 tbl spoons of corn flour
Mix the ingredients together and add a few more drops of water if you need to.
Take the mixture out of the bowl into your hands then roll it together and see what happens.
Last Friday Year 7/8 had Becamath and there were some fantastic results. Our team came 2nd (Thomas, Liam, Emily B and Jessica L.) Many of the questions were really challenging and made us work hard as a team to prove our maths skills!
A big thanks to Mr Johnson for teaching us in Room 18 at the moment. Yesterday Mr Johnson did a science experiment with us as part of learning to write explanations. First we got a bag and filled it up with baking soda, citric acid, food colouring, and water then shook it up and set it on the ground.The reaction of the mixture made the bag puff up. But sadly it did not blow up like we all wanted it to!
We are also studying the Ancient Olympics as a lead-up to the Games starting at the end of this week.
