Very Funny Jack Flash Show

Today we saw a fantastic show put on by The Playhouse Theatre group, based in Christchurch.
It was based on the classic tale of Jack And The Beanstalk, and performed entirely by only 3 actors!

We laughed a lot at the silly characters, but also understood the hidden message about the importance of the Three R's - Recycle - Reduce and Reuse.

Here are some photos ...

Exploring Sound

For our Science topic, we are learning about sound.
What is sound?
How does sound travel?
What are different types of sound?
What makes high pitch and low pitch?

All these questions and more!  Today we learnt about VIBRATIONS. Two children held a piece of paper over a speaker and Miss Jeynes sprinkled sand over it, When she turn the volume up .. the sand 'danced'!

Then we went on a sound hunt around the class. We scraped, scratched, banged and blew on different objects to create different sounds. We recorded what we did and whether the sound we made was a HIGH or LOW pitch.

Here are some pictures ...
We are looking forward to doing more experiments with sound

Wheels Day

Weeee! On Wednesday, the whole school had a blast scooting and rollerblading around the school. And to make our day even better, the Student Council also organised burgers for lunch!
That was so much fun!
