Beware Of Reading: Danger Lurks!

During the Summer Holidays - a while ago I know! - Ben and I entered the Remuera Library's next top model contest. The aim was to have the most creative photo of someone reading and, yes, you guessed it: We Won!!! Believe it or not this shot was taken while we were moving. It took about 20 photos and a few lots of bruises when I didn't duck fast enough! The prizes were 2 books and a pack of M&Ms each. So head on over and enter a contest today!

Coke and Hamberger talk about Essentials of Life

Our reading group has been building our knowledge about things that are essential to life.  We've learnt that there is a difference between something being essential and important.  Sometimes it's hard to know if it's important or essential.

We've made videos on GoAnimate for you to see.

Harry write and performs his own song!!

Today I'm going to sing you a song. I wrote it myself and I played it on the ukelele. I hope you like it - Learning Hub Three think it's pretty awesome!!!

These are the words:

One day my Mum went to the beach and she sang me a song,
About the crabs and the shells in the world,
And the fruit and the vegetables in the world,
And how much she loved me in the world.

And she went back home and she sang me another song,
About the crabs and the shells again,
And the fruit and the vegetables again,
And how much she loved me again.

I'm feeling on top of the world,
I'm feeling on top of the world,
I'm feeling on top of the world,
I'm feelng on top of the world,
Ooooooohhh lahhh.

Have you written a song before?

 From Harry (the rockstar!!)

Our first science day

Ice ball after dye and salt.jpgHi everyone it's Michelle here. I am going to talk to you about our first science day this year and it is about water. We were divided into different groups .Their was a group with Miss Holland, Miss Smerdon & Mrs Chapman. I was in Mrs Chapmans group we were asked if we could choose one table to go to for our first experiment to begin! At my table there was Sarah Savannah Noera-miah and I. We had to get a ice balloon (water balloon frozen for 2 weeks) we had to peal the balloon outside off it to make it just ice! Next we put dye on the ice (We need to have a fair experiment. That means that there needs to be one thing the same like does a plant grow in the dark then in the sun the sun has water  so they both have to make water) On one of the ice balloons put 1 teaspoon of salt onto it equally. And watch it for 5 minutes what happens?  My group found something weird the color changed on the salted ice. So we put it in two glass bottles and listen to this the dye with the salted ice had more water! do you think you know why? Comment below we would love to hear what you think.Thanks for reading! Michelle.
