Circus fun day! 18/9/15

Today was circus fun day! Lots of people dressed up and we had a great day doing lots of different activities with our buddy class. 

We warmed up with some relay races. 

After that we danced with Mr Garner as we played 'Buddy Buddy' and musical chairs. 


Jynaiah and Marino are playing pin the nose on the clown!

Riley, Bella, Cindy and Sophie showing the trapeze artists they made. 

We also practised our hoolahoop skills....

And our tightrope walking skills! 

Lachlan drew an awesome clown. 

Nate is doing the bean bag throw. 

BelÅ‚a is trying to get the beanbag in the clown's mouth. 

We worked together colouring in giant clowns!

Lucas is working on a circus day word find. 

In Room 1 we played tenpin bowling,

Mouse hole roll,

And penny toss. 

Great focus, Jason!

Awesome costumes girls. 

We also played hoop throwing games. 

In Room 2 we were throwing bean bags through hoops. 

Nice shot!

We also threw frogs onto lilypads. 

A great day was had by all! 

Egg whites 8/9/15

For our last science rotation we went to Room 16. We were learning about egg whites. Mrs Walker cracked an egg and poured the egg white into a big bowl. 

It was a yellowish, runny liquid. We wanted to find out what would happen if we mixed it up. 

We all had a turn using the beater. 

There were lots of bubbles in it. 

It changed from a yellowish colour to really white!

And it wasn't so runny anymore! Mrs Walker tried to tip it on Jessica but it didn't pour out! We learnt that the beater made lots of air bubbles and the egg white wrapped around the air to hold the bubbles. 

Sophie is a big air bubble and Bella is the egg white wrapping around the bubble. After that, Mrs Walker used the egg white to make cookies. 

We all got to try one. Mmm!

Popcorn 1/9/15

In science this afternoon we went to Room 14. We looked at a photo of a corn field and talked about the history of popcorn. We learnt that corn kernels get cut off the corn cob and tossed around in a machine that heats them up. This dries them up and makes them really hard - this is popping corn! 

We passed some popping corn around the class to look at it and feel it. 

It felt really hard! We couldn't eat it because it would break our teeth! We put a small scoop of popping corn into a popcorn maker. The machine heated the corn which changed it. We could hear popping and popcorn starting coming out of the machine! 

The hard, yellow kernels changed into soft, white popcorn that we could eat. The small scoop of popping corn made a whole bowl of popcorn! 

 Then we got to eat the popcorn...

It was really yummy!
