Primary Science Award

The children in Room 5 were celebrating the delivery of our plaque from Primary science.

The school was awarded the plaque for it’s work in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. These areas are called STEM. We worked very hard for this award and we are proud to get it.

Room 11 – dream houses

Room 11 have been discovering the different properties of various materials to decide which ones would suit our dream houses! We designed our dream houses before adding some materials to it. There were some whacky houses- would you like to live in an upside down house?

Room 12 – learning about space

We are learning about Day and Night and the Solar System. The children of room 12 are working together on a project and doing some fun experiments!

Learning about space in Room 11

Room 11 have been exploring the world of space and space travel. We wondered what food was like so we tried some space ice cream. It wasn’t cold and felt like styrofoam!

Learning about healthy teeth in Room 1

Room 11 discovered the effects of different drinks on our teeth. We used hard boiled eggs for the experiment as we learned that they have the same enamel as in our teeth. We put one in water to use as our control (to compare it to), one in Coke and one in apple juice. We were surprised to see the apple juice was the most disgusting! It was great fun.
