Amazing Dioramas


AMAZING DIORAMAS

As part of our celebrations for Book Week, students in Room 26 & 27 were asked to create a diorama of a scene from a book that they have enjoyed. This could have either been fiction or non - fiction.

The results were amazing. Students included lots of detail. 

I wonder if you can guess what book they are from?

Book Week Song

Matariki

This week we have the Enviroschools Facilitator Sonya Sedgwick coming in to school to work with classes to create stone art. We will be painting our own rocks to represent the different stars within the Matariki Constellation. We have been learning the Matariki Waiata to sing during the workshop.

Nathan and Max have been experimenting with air pressure as part of our inquiry into simple machines. They have constructed potato cannons that are powered by high pressure air pumped in from a bicycle pump. Here are some photos of them testing the cannon. The furthest shot travelled 82 metres!
