We were taught a poem about using the correct spelling, punctuation and grammar in our writing. We were part of a play, which we performed at the end of the day to the whole school.
SPLAT Circus Skills
Paul came to teach us circus skills. We were taught how to juggle, balance, stilt walk and use spinning plates. We had great fun learning a new sport.
We have been looking at forces and movement. We did an investigation on how the wheels and axel of a car affects the speed and also how the height of a ramp affects the distance travelled by a car. We used our skills of measurement in numeracy to help us calculate the results. We found out that the higher the ramp, the longer the distance travelled by the car.

When the animal antics were here they had a beaded dragon. You could hold a worm in front of it and the dragon would eat it with his tongue.
Our school nurse, Mrs Redhead, visited us in school to tell us all about the importance of washing our hands. She told us when we must wash our hands and also a little song to sing whilst doing so.
