How to make an Electrical Circut




We had fun today making circuts to make a light bulb go on.






Next week (8) for homework the children will have reading, spelling and are to do some chores around the house to raise money to buy their own 9 volt battery. These will be used to make their own xmas decoration. Go to it!

Beartifying our School

Will Rabbits and Lizards beautify our School?
Some research is needed with this question.
If you have a comment please tell us!

Remember we are learning to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

Colin presented a project to the class which he has been working on all year with Mrs Small.
It was very interesting. Thanks Colin!

How to?

Wow, our inquiry is going really well!
In the classroom you can see the experiements we have been looking at.
How to plant a sunflower. How much dirt does it need? Does it need light? How much water? Does it need water to grow?


Wanaka Waste Busters visited again and this time we planted a spud in a bucket. Not an ordinary spud though.

Simon has also visited us again. He helped us to brainstorm all the things we think will beautify our school and then we voted what we thought we would like to do. We split into groups and 'Action Planned' how we are going to do it. We think we will need some help too!

We need to write letters to some people to ask about how we are going to do some of the things. To write the letters we need PAPER! We have researched how to make paper and are now making paper in the classroom. Lexi's mum is helping too.

Lachie, Matthew and Ruben found this website. How to make recycled paper: http://www.dnr.state.wi.us/org/caer/ce/eek/cool/paper.htm

Lexi and Katelynd found this site. It also explains how to reuse and reduce paper waste:

Get Well Soon!


Kent's Mum had an accident last Friday and had to spend a night in Invercargill hospital. We are pleased to hear she is back home. We got busy and made her a get well card on Friday. Kent took it home for her. We hope it has cheered her up. Get well soon!
