It's Buddy Day Today!

We decorated our buddy. We all wrote stories about him and choose his name. Then we recorded his story in his special diary. We combined stories from nearly the whole class to make his story. 

Our buddy Nate joined in with our learning. We took him to our big slide. He really liked it. Buddy day is about raising awareness about children and their safety. You can find out more about it here. We hope our buddy Nate had a great day and we look forward to seeing what he did. We miss him.

Our buddy Nate met Buddy Bud from Room 4.

This is a photo of us before we said goodbye to Nate.

Floating a paper clip

This paper clip experiment is about water tension. Did you know water has a skin. You can break it. When we did a floating and sinking experiment the things that were heavier than water sunk and the things that were lighter floated. 
Mrs Blair told us that she could make a paper clip float. We didn't believe her so we all tried it any way. 
Some people made the paper clip float by putting it in gently then Mrs Blair showed us how she could do it. Here is a video of the way she did it. You could try this too.

Hamilton East Film Festival

We had our very own film festival at Hamilton East School.
We watched films from some classes. You can see their films here.

We thought it was good. We are making our own films because they inspired us. 
Keep checking our blog so you can watch our movies.

Water fountain

Dry Paper Challenge

We put a paper inside a cup. We pushed the tissue really hard. Then we held the bottom of the cup and put it in the water fast, we let it go. When you pull it out straight and don't do it crooked the tissue will stay dry. The tissue stays dry when you trap air in the cup.

Can you do it at home?
