The following piece of writing is by Finn Bolitho:
Today we played basketball. First we played Ship, Shark, Shore. I was the second to last person to win. But I lost. Second we played dribbling the ball. That was practise.
We needed to have our eyes looking up. We also had to use our finger tips.
We also had to have the ball below our waist.
Next we played Stuck in the Mud.
After that we played a game called Stop Troll. George was the one who was stopping us. When he turned around we needed to balance the ball and hold it. If we lost the ball we would need to go to the yellow line.
Finally we got to play the game that we play last of all on all of the basketball lessons.
I got 5 or 4 goals.
My favourite thing at basketball is shooting hoops because we get to shoot the ball into the air and I get lots of goals. by Finn Bolitho
Charlotte Lander: My favourite thing at basketball is Follow the Leader because you get to dribble.
Kaleb Demanser: My favourite thing at basketball is Stop Troll. I like it because it's super challenging and I like challenging games. We could only dribble the ball when George is looking away.
Yesterday we went to Room 20. We did an experiment called expanding bags. We needed vinegar, baking soda, a plastic bag and a tissue. I thought it would go all bubbly and would puff up and pop!! We put the baking soda in a tissue. Then we dropped it in the vinegar. It made a gas called carbon dioxide. The bag puffed up and went pop!! It popped because the vinegar made a gas called carbon dioxide. by Kaleb Demanser
Yesterday we went to Room 20. We did Science. It was exploding. We used bags, baking soda, white vinegar and a tissue. We put the ingredients in the bag and we shook it. We went outside and we had a good shake. It got fatter and fatter and POP! I made the gas carbon dioxide.
This afternoon we went to room 21 for our science rotation. We predicted what would happen to cream when it cools down. Some of us thought it would stay as a liquid, and some thought it would turn into a solid.
First we mixed vanilla essence and sugar into the cream in a bag.
Then we put the bag in a bigger bag with ice cubes and rock salt.
