PENN Room 25 Term 2




We have been learning about how simple machines help us in the physical world. Our news looks at how a pulley makes it easier to lift heavy loads. Mr Jacobsen came to our space with his pulley and attached it to a bean in our space. We all got a turn at pulling up a bucket full of books. We tried lifting the bucket without the pulley and it was very hard. When we used the pulley it was much easier because Mr Jacobsen said that there are actually 2 ropes helping to lift the load.

We had a really cool afternoon. Thank you Mr Jacobsen for coming to our space.

Duffy Theatre

The Duffy Theatre came to Pt England school to entertain us today with their amazing singing, acting and their really cool props. This year their message was about being Kind and caring, brave and strong. I like the Duffy song and this year the girls did sign language while they sang. I thought the teacher was funny too.
