Designing Parachutes

Today we were given the challenge: design a parachute using...
* 5 plastic bags
*  10 straws
* 4 serviettes
* 5 pieces of paper
(and as much string, cellotape as needed)

that will be dropped high above concrete - which must have an egg in it.
The egg is NOT allowed to crack or break!

We've learnt about how we need lots of AIR RESISTANCE, so we got busy creating ...

Tomorrow, we're going to finish these and put our 'egg person' into them.
(We'll have buckets of water and scrubbing brushes on standby!)

Fun Sports Day

Today the whole school had lots of fun. We started the day with fun activities like: egg and spoon race, parachute games, water relays, etc.

Then we watched the teachers and staff versus some of the senior students in cricket on the new cricket pitch. The students won - just!

We had a delicious iceblock , then after lunch we all had turns at running and sliding on the slippery slide.

Here are some photos of our day:
