Clyde School Olympics

A huge thank you to Miss Henderson, Miss L and the Ruru students for organising the school mini Olympics.  What a fantastic range of fun activities. The emphasis for the day was on the Olympic ideals of friendship, respect and excellence. It was great to see everyone supporting and encouraging each other. Well done!

Freezing Temperatures

Yesterday we talked about how water can change into ice. We decided to create our own experiment. We filled five containers. One container had sand in it and another had a mix of sand and water.  We put dirt in a third container and a mixture of dirt and water in a fourth container. The final container was filled with only water. We put them outside over night to see what would happen.

Can you be a scientist at home and create your own "frozen" experiment?

Today Tom worked really hard at making sure that his letters were around the right way. Super focus Tom.
You have also made some brave spelling attempts.

Wow Factor Science

Today we did a science experiment that investigated surface tension.  We pretended to be scientists and carefully observed what happened.

Jazmin said "The colours are mixing".
Blake said "It looks like a smoothie".
Elina noticed that "the top of the surface moved".
Levi and Aden noticed that "the colours were twirling around in a circle"
Jackson thought that the patterns "looked like birds wings".
Dylan said "the bubbles moved around the plate like jet boats".
Tom explained that "the colours rushed to the sides and then it looked like a double wave".
