Challenege: to work in teams to design and build a catapault that would launch a marshmallow.

Materials: popsticks, rubber bands, plastic spoons, hot glue, sticky tape

The next day we tested our catapaults with a competition to see which group could launch a marshmallow the furthest. Each group had three shots and we recorded the best distance out of three. The winning group lauched their marshmallow almost 3 metres

Another fun Team work Tuesday ( and Wednesday ☺)

Bridge Riddle

Today for Team work Tuesday we tried something different.Students worked in teams to solve the bridge riddle posted above. It is a great problem solving challenge and students tried their best to find a solution.
Some students had seen the riddle before but couldn’t remember the answer. Others remembered but sat back first and then helped without telling the group the answer straight away. Can you solve the bridge riddle?

Hi

Due to the shorter week and Naplan next week I am holding off starting some of our normal routines such as spelling,  Daily Dash and Homework Bingo. This is allowing us more time to do some NAPLAN style comprehension and numeracy activities to expose students to the types of questions they will see next week. Hopefully this will take away some of the mystery and lessen any worries some students may be feeling.

For homework i encourage students to read each night and do some studyladder activities if possible

What a fantatsic afternoon!

Congratulations to all the students in Room 17 & 18 on a hugely successful Sweets Stall.

We sold out of all our products and look forward to finding out how much money we helped to raise for the school.

Students worked hard to organise, make and sell the products and their efforts are to be congratulated. I am very proud of all their hard work.

Thank you again for all the parent support in helping us to make the products, donating ingredients or lending platters and containers. Thank you also to those that were able to come along on the day and support our class by buying a sweet treat. They were delicious.

Krista ☺

All our sweets are now made and ready to sell at Enterprise Day.

A big thank you to Paula, Kelly, Leanne, Deb and Katie for coming in to help our groups make their products. It was noisy, organised chaos lol so your help was really appreciated.

Also thank you to everyone who helped out by sending in food, containers and platters. Anything that wasn’t used or was left over from today has been sent home. I will have all the platters, containers and chocolate moulds washed and ready to send home on Thursday.

Thank you ☺
