Teacher had some raw and cooked eggs but couldn't tell which was which so we helped her.
If you spin a cooked egg it spins quickly and stops immediately if you put your hand on it.
This is like a child in a car with a seat belt on who stops as soon as the car does.
If you spin a raw egg it spins more slowly and stops for a second if you put your hand on it, but then continues spinning slowly. This is like a child in a car with no seat belt on. When the car stops suddenly the child keeps moving, often bumping his head on the seat in front or the windscreen.
This is a good test for raw and cooked eggs, and a good reminder for us to always wear our seat belts in the car!
We use target boards in Maths to practise the language of maths. How many bears are there? How many red/yellow/blue/green bears? How many bears in each line/row/column? How many bears would there be in the second row if we took one/two away?
Today at PE we did some gymnastics. Teacher did the very lively warm up time first of all with us so that we won't get hurt or won't be stiff tomorrow.
We concentrated today on rolls and vault.
We did pencil rolls and forward rolls. Some of us are very good at this, and some of us need a little more practice.
On the vault we did squat jumps onto the vault and straight jumps off the vault, and then we did straddle jumps on and star jumps off the vault. We even presented nicely at the end of each roll or vault.
WELL DONE to the astronauts from Astronaut School (Rooms 5 and 13) who put on such a great space and rocket show for the whole school, and to the teachers, parents and grandparents who were such a great help making rockets, sending in books on space and the planets, and for coming in to see us this morning. We hope you learned a little about space. We sure did!!!!!!
Ronan read us a great story called Megan buys a present.
It was interesting to see how Megan could save money by doing little jobs for her mum, her dad and her sister. Ronan gave us each a lovely money box so that we can save the money we get. We are enjoying learning about money and about saving.
