Today we lost half our class to the Kids for Kids Concert so what do you do with a whole group of boys from Room 14 and 5. Make catapults.  First we learnt some history of catapults. Then we made one with popsicle sticks, rubber bands, plastic spoons and pompoms. After testing it, we modified the design and then we had a competition to see whose could go the furtherest. 
After play we got out the iPads and used Book Creator to show our learning which was heaps - history, science, technology, reading, language and maths.

Make It Rain - Science

Today we made it rain in Room 5. We learnt that as clouds get more and more water in them they get too heavy and it rains. We showed this by doing a science experiment with a jar, water, shaving foam and blue dye. We filled 3/4 of a jar with water then added shaving foam to be a cloud. We then added dye slowly and watched as it went through the 'cloud' to form rain.

Grandparents Visit

Grandparents Visit
To finish our inquiry unit on toys we invited grandparents and parents to visit us and see our toys. It was a lovely afternoon with grandparents from Wellington, Hamilton, Upper Hutt and Palmerston coming to visit. The kids loved seeing everyone and showing them what they had learnt.

Our Toys

For our Inquiry we designed a new toy and made it. We made games, juggling balls, soft toys, play houses and much more. It required lots of green hat thinking.
