We got to spend some time with a group of people from Auckland Rugby. We had fun learning and playing games with them. They taught us some ball skills used in Rugby games.

Willow

On the last day of term I brought Willow to school. She is 6 months old and very cute. My students have been hanging out to meet her. The students learned how to make her sit and lay down. Some students were successful in doing this , Maddie was very good and was able to give Willow a treat. The students got to walk her a short distance and brush her coat.

MOTAT

Team 2 went to MOTAT this term as part of our inquiry into simple machines.
 We piled into 2 buses with teachers and our lovely support staff and parents. We got to MOTAT and met with our guide Abbey who looked after us throughout the day. 
We explored MOTAT looking at how simple machines have helped people in everyday life.
The education lesson with Abbey was fun because the students were able to carefully use some simple machines to help us make things. We put wheels on boards, we made lots of gears turn at once we also used tools to make a skateboard for the stuffed animals.
MOTAT was so much fun.

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.
