Which Material Absorbs Best?

Spring showers can only mean one thing for our floors inside our homes…PUDDLES! First class put their thinking caps on today and came up with an experiment that would test which material would clean up puddles best. They made a prediction and then carried out the experiment to establish a result. Each of the children made sure to measure the water and the size of the materials carefully. It is so important that each test is fair so that the result is accurate.

Not only did first class discover whichmaterial absorbed best, they also discovered that playing with water is lots of fun!

STEM Activities in Room 10!

We completed two light experiments last week to show the splitting and mixing of light/colour.

Experiment 1: We made rainbow spinners to show that when the rainbow colours are spun quickly, your eyes can’t keep up and the spinner appears white.

Experiment 2: We explored white light and colour by placing skittles and the outer circle of a plate. We added water and observed what happened. The colours moved towards the middle and created a whirl of colour.

Maths Challenge: First class vs. Fifth class 

As a part of Maths Week, 5th class, Room 7 have come up with a number of word problems for all of the students in first class to solve. This morning, the two classes met and first class proved their worth as they solved over 20 word problems together.

On Friday, 5th class plan to come back with problems that are even more challenging. We can’t wait!
