What will happen if....

This week we looked at what will happen if we mixed oil and water together. We had to make a prediction as to whether it would mix or separate or react.

We each got a chance to shake it.

We found that the mixture separated

Blowing bubbles

This week we have explored how water can be mixed with shampoo, dish washing liquid, bubble bath to make bubble mixture. We wondered if the colour of the mixture would make different coloured bubbles. Over several days we blew a lot of bubbles as we explored the different mixtures. We had a lot of fun and found that shampoo made the biggest bubbles and that all the bubbles were clear.

Swimming in our school pool is a great way to cool down on hot days. We swim at 1:30 to 1:50 Monday to Thursday.
A lot of us are learning to gain confidence in the water while others of us are learning to glide across the pool with a flutter board.

Welcome to Room 1 2012

Welcome to all the children who have started school at Sunnybrae Normal School. We have an exciting year of learning planned and we look forward to you all taking an active part in our school community.

We thought about 5 things that would help to make room one a great place to be. We decided that in room one we will......
Be friends
Be kind to each other
Be happy
Be ready to learn
Do our best

Here are some photos taken on our first two days of the 2012 school year - you can see we are already working hard on each of these 5 things. Enjoy

When I asked Ben about the heart he had made he replied - I love my mum.
So thanks to all the mum's, dad's and extended family members who have helped to make the transition to school a smooth and happy one.
