We all dressed up for school today. The costumes were amazing.
Teacher looked horrible in her witch's costume (she really needs to brush those disgusting teeth!)
In fact all the teachers looked funny!
We went on our Hallowe'en walk, had a party (we love sharing goodies!), watched a Winnie the Pooh Hallowe'en video, made and flew rockets and played Pass the Parcel. We wish every day could be so much fun!
Here we are in our wonderful costumes.
We had a great time on our walk and the rain held off too. Weren't we lucky?
Teacher showed us how we can roll a rectangle to make a cylinder,
how we can fold and chop a rectangle to make a square or diamond and triangles,
how we can roll a circle to make a cone.
Armed with this knowledge we set about making air rockets.
Teacher had made the cylinders for us, because that is a slow job, but we stuck on the triangular fins, and made and stuck on the nose cones. We also decorated our rockets. We will fly them outside when the weather improves a little.
Hallowe'en is a great time to play traditional games like "pass the parcel".
We played this game today, with a slight twist.
We brought a bit of science and maths into our game.
With each layer of the parcel the students had to describe the material covering the parcel....what is the covering? is it hard/soft? is it absorbent/waterproof? is it opaque/see through? is it dull/shiny?
When the music stopped we could unwrap a layer, keep the prize and describe the maths shape we see......how many sides? how many corners? its colour? the name of the shape?
We really like this game, but we ran out of time. Teacher has said that we can play this game again after the break!
