During this week we have been learning how to complete a science experiment. Our focus has been on gathering data and interpreting it. By Mrs Olynsma

We have been learning about seeing if it is better to have one eye shut or two eyes open when dropping a coin into a cup. By Cash

A hypothesis is what you think before doing the experiment and I'm pretty sure that I think that two eyes are better than one. By Campbell

Here are some of our conclusions ...

I think that two eyes are better than one because you get more of a look. By Esther

I think that two eyes are better than one because you can not get the right drop zone with one eye. By Max H

I think that two eyes are best because with one eye you have to move your face to see different things. By Charlie
When we did the experiment we had to do it correctly or otherwise it wouldn't have been a fair test and the results wouldn't have been true. By Ben

It was tricky to get the coin into the cup with one eye closed. By Charlie

I felt confused because I had one eye shut. I was better with two eyes open! By Paige

I felt proud when I got the coin in with one eye covered. By Arden

Te Reo Kori - Poi

Today we have had fun trying to use poi! We have been bashed in the face, head and backs and had a few tangles. We kept on smiling and eventually gained some control. Each small group are working to join three moves together to make a dance to the music of 'Poi E'

Kindness vs Bullying - What is best?

This week we have read a poem and a book about kindness vs bullying. We have had some discussions about building positive relationships and how to deal with situations when somebody is not being kind. 

Macca the Alpaca is a kind alpaca, who after being bullied by Harmer the Lama showed kindness by hugging him. By Isabelle
I learned that if people bully you, you can make them stop bullying by being kind to them. By Charlie

We learned that saying mean things is bullying but saying kind things is kindness and builds friendship. By Max C
