Week 7 Term 3

Hi Families,

What an amazing week we have had culminating in our South Africa Day today.Well done to Luke, Andre and Zachariah for imagining the day and for all their hard work.  A big thank you to all our families for supporting our day, helping your child to dress up and for bringing delicious food for our shared lunch. Enjoy the photos!

Rocket Blasters
This group have been working so hard to solve the problem of how to make the rocket go up instead of sideways!!  They have been designing stands for their rocket to sit in.  As you can see from the picture, they haven't quite got there yet!!  But they are not giving up yet........

Stars and Gravity
The children in these groups have been exploring an app called 'Show Me.' They are going to use it to make their movies.  They have finished writing their scripts and should be in production mode next week!

Control Panel
The children went back to the secondary school this week with their final design. We were blown away with what they brought back to share with us.  The students that they worked with commented on how impressed they were with the level of the children's understanding and with the questions they were asking.  They have certainly done us proud.  A big thank you to the boys at the secondary school and to Freya's Mum, Ros for helping this group be so successful.

Outside Area
We are hoping to see some developments this week.  Should you have any expertise in the gardening area or resources, please let us know!  The children are keen to set up some small planting boxes with flowers, herbs and maybe sone vegetables.  We are also hoping to get some large rocks and small pebbles to paint to use for outside games.

Have a great weekend!

Kerry and Rosie
