So, despite the rain, Boot Camp carried on!
We took the opportunity to look at little closer at our fitness levels. Using pulse meters, we recorded our resting rate and then upped the exercise! We recorded our pulse rate every time we increased our exercise. We had great fun doing this and then, at the end of the session we plotted our results in a graph. It was really interesting to see how our bodies had reacted to the increased physical activity- it was also easy to spot results which didn't seem correct.
Another fun session this afternoon guys- well done!

We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy.

We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
