Term 3 here we come


Yay another term to look forward to.  We had some amazing learning happening in Room 5 last term and I am so excited to see what my Room 5 learners have in store for me this term.  
In Term 3 we will be learning about Sound and we have some awesome experiments lined up where the children can all get hands on valuable learning experiences.
We can't wait

Term 2 experimenting








During term 2 we learnt about simple machines and forces of push and pull.  The children in Room 5 really enjoyed this learning through the term as they got to do enjoy some hands on experiences with some simple machines.  We experimented with a pulley and we tied several different objects to the end and we all had turns pulling them up.  We experimented with marbles and cars on marble tracks and wooden blocks to see how push and pull effects the motion of the objects.  Children all got wooden blocks and constructed several different ways to try and get the marbles and the cars to move fast and slow.  We spoke about what makes the objects move faster or slower.  At the end of the term we constructed cars using boxes and straws, along with bottle tops.  Children had to build a wheel and axle using the straws and bottle tops, to try and get their cars to move.
