In R.E we have been learning about baptism and the Holy Spirit. We made pyramids to symbolise the three gifts we were given to at baptism; faith, hope and love.

This term we are learning about the water cycle. We did some science experiments to see how some of the stages work. First we learnt about air particles, we got plastic straws and gently blew through them onto our hands and felt them. We then got little mirrors and put them close to our faces then breathed on them, this showed us condensation. Then someone blew up a balloon and put it in a bucket of water then let go. It was very funny to see the air escape into the water and make lots of bubbles.This was to show the gas particles in the balloon. The last experiment we did involved three balloons, one was only blown up a little bit, one was blown up a bit more and the last one was blown up all the way. We had fun pushing against the sides to feel the pressure of the air inside it. Overall I had lots of fun doing this experiment and would like to do it again.

Last term we learnt all about growth mindset. We made a factual piece of art on people who had a growth mindset. My person was Marie Curie. Marie definitely had a growth mindset because she went through lots of hard times but still powered through and managed to receive two noble peace prizes!! I think she is very inspiring and if you have a chance to learn about her definitely do it. Overall I really enjoyed learning about someone new and would definitely do it again.

This term in writing we have been doing brochures. We all did our first ones on being sunsmart. I think that being sunsmart is very important because if you are not a sunsmart person then you have a likely chance of getting skin cancer. In my brochure you can find information like all the six skin types and lots more. Here are some pictures from my brochure:
In inquiry we got put in pairs and made a poster about one of the key sunsmart features. My partner was Dean and we did a poster about Wrap. Wrap means to wrap on some sunglasses to protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays. I had fun doing this poster and I also learned that all pairs of sunglasses in New Zealand give you some protection.
