Teach the Teacher

A huge thank you to Carter, James and Cade who have all shared with us their fabulous teach the teachers. We all look forward to teach the teacher on Fridays as it's very exciting to learn new things from our peers. 

Carter brought in some very interesting science experiments, he showed us the bouncy egg, growing crystals and reactive water. 

James showed us all how to make beautiful friendship bracelets. It was a little tricky at first, but we managed to get it!

Cade wowed us with his karate skills and knowledge. He taught us how to defend ourselves in different situations so that we can make it to safety. 

Check out the photos from these sessions here. 

I can't wait to see what we will learn next week. Tell us what you think it might be.

Welcome to Science Week!

Wowzer! What a fantastic way to kick off science week.

We were treated to an amazing presentation from the wonderful people at Science in a Van. We learnt a lot about the three laws of motion and saw some super interesting experiments.

My favourtite part was when Steve (the chicken) was strapped to the rocket and then was blown into the ceiling. What was yours?

Please check out some more EPIC videos and pictures and leave us a comment!

Thank You Shiloh

On Friday, Shiloh presented her Teach the Teacher. It was FANTASTIC. Shiloh taught us all about her family's culture... Dutch.

There were so many interesting facts in her slide show, she gave us some dutch waffle to try, showed us a tiny portrait her aunt had painted and she even taught us a sentence in dutch.

Wow! Well done Shiloh, it was a wonderful Teach the Teacher. I can't wait to see what comes next.

Patterns are Interesting!

In week 5 we looked at Pascal's Triangle and last week we look at the Fibonacci spiral. We are starting to discover that there are patterns everywhere we looked. Finding patterns is something that anyone can do and we enjoyed it so much!

Here are some pictures from our pattern searching:

Can you find the patterns in these?

Teach the Teacher: Part Two and Three

We have some amazing and passionate students in room 6!

Thank you to all the students who shared their teach the teacher last week and this week. Peyton showed us how to create a lava lamp in a bottle, Nathan showed us how to make a vinegar volcano and Tait shared some awesome information about her passion, gymnastics.

I love watching the students take charge and teach the whole class because they all work so hard to prepare for their lesson. Well done Peyton, Nathan and Tait - you all rock!

Check out our photos and videos!

Who will be next? What will we learn next?
