We had a visit from the road safety authority (RSA).
They helped us learn how to stay safe on our roads.
If we are on our bicycles or on scooters we will always wear a helmet, and also wear a safety high viz vest if we can.
Belt (we will wear our seat belts)
Booster (we will use a booster seat until we are 150cm tall and also 36kg in weight)..that's the law in the EU!
Back seat (We will ride in the back seat of the car while we are still not adult sized, because we could be hurt if the airbag came on in a crash).
Thank you for helping keep us safe on the roads.

Advent is a time to prepare for the birth of Jesus.
We have an advent wreath in class.
We light one candle a week until Christmas time.
They will look very nice when they are finished.

Here are the 6 finalists for this year's
Doodle 4 Google from our school.
We wish them the very best of luck.
We know that air is all around us but we were wondering if air is very strong?
We tested this by using a bottle and a ping pong ball.
If you fill a bottle with water and then put a ping pong ball on top instead of a cap, what do you think will happen if you turn both up-side down.
Will the ping pong ball fall, causing all the water to splash all over the place?
Will the ping pong ball stay where it is and act as a stopper, keeping all the water in the bottle?
The water in the bottle wants to fall to earth (gravity is pulling the water) but the air under the ping pong ball pushes it up against the bottle keeping all the water in the bottle.
Today we made passenger boats.
We used marla.
A ball of marla just sinks every time but still teacher asked us to try and make a floating boat from a sphere of marla.
We saw how big heavy shells can float if they are the right shape.
