18/12/19 Its almost Christmas and we are so excited. Today we are doing a bubble experiment. We made our own bubble wands. Some people made their bubble wands with PLASTIC straws, wooden popsicle sticks and pipe cleaners. We made 2 mixtures. The first one included half a cup of corn starch,1.5 litres of water, 2 cups of dish soap, 1 tablespoon of glycerin, 1 tablespoon of baking soda and we put plastic wrap on top. For the second one we put half a cup of warm water, 1 tablespoon of glycerin, 2 tablespoon of dish soap and a plastic wrap on top. We did it with room 3. We tested it out and had fun looks like the first mixture worked out good. We will leave the mixture for longer and see tomorrow if it is as good as today.

14/11/19 Last week we went to the marae and had lots of fun. We did 3 activities all together some of our favorite things were, playing rugby, string games, hearing a funny story about KFC, learning the rakau, learning the poi's and playing volley ball.

5/11/19 To day we learnt how to make slime. We added red and gold glitter, it made a orange sort of colour. We also added clear glue and a magic liquid that made the slime come together. Some us thought it looked like, slurp, gulp. We thought we could be spider man with the sticky slime. Last week we had athletics. We all did vortex, shot put, high jump, long jump, discus and sprints. Two people from our class did the 1500m run, that was Corbin and Kobi.
