What a busy first few weeks back for the term! With swim week and Life Education this week I decided to do shared reading with the class. Each of our stories have involved either a 'pool' or a teacher named 'Miss Pool'.

Today we had Julie from ECO Educate come and talk to Room 1 and 2 about recycling. We learnt about the different things that should be put into recycling and landfill at home and school. We also have new rubbish bins through the whole school and are making sure we are doing the right thing with our rubbish.
This term in science we have been talking about Solid, Liquid and Gas. So today we started an experiment with Miss Edzes to see what happens when we use jelly crystals to try and make jelly.
We started we jelly crystals (solid) and added hot water and mixed very carefully. The crystals dissolved and became a liquid. Overnight the jelly will be in the fridge. Now we have to wait...
