Term 2 Week 6 Diary

Term 2 Week 6 –

  • This week we have been investigating floating and sinking. We predicted what would happen to a set of objects when we put them into water. Mrs Ford showed us how an orange floats but the question was how do you make an orange sink? We came up with some interesting ideas then someone suggested peeling the orange and who would have guessed the orange sank.
  • We have also been busy this week designing and building a boat out of recycled materials. Of course we want our boat to float so we had to choose our materials carefully. So far we have drawn our plan and constructed our boat. Next week we will test them in the water trolley.
  • We were very lucky to have a visit from the people at Camp Quality. They brought a puppet show for us. The characters were Kylie and Dean. Kylie had been having chemotherapy to treat her cancer so all of her hair and eyebrows had fallen out. She was nervous about returning to kindy in case everyone laughed at her. We learnt that it doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside it’s what is on the inside that counts.
  • The Surprise Box is proving to be very popular and everyone is waiting patiently to have their turn. We are learning some interesting information from the surprises people are bringing in.
