Term 1 summary - Science

This term during science, I have learnt many new things based on different topics. I've learnt the different layers of the earth and many other things about the planet we live on. In misses lab she has safety rules for whoever attempts something using the equipment or chemicals. She taught us the branches of science and the connected parts towards it, she also had us write it down so we won't forget. In science this term I learned how tsunamis and volcanoes were formed. I also learned the different types of plate tectonics and what it does, I learned about the divergent boundaries, as well as continental and oceanic crust. I've enjoyed many of the topics we've studied on this term and I am happy I learnt those interesting topics.

Science - Volcanic Eruption, Baking Soda + Vinegar

Today during science with Mrs Kuruvilla, we did an experiment. First we got split into 4 groups then we each had to go to a station. We needed a beaker, measuring cylinder and once we had those items, the teacher came and added baking soda and vinegar into the measuring cylinder. Before she came around, we had to fill the measuring tube with water and red food colouring. Once the teacher added the baking soda and vinegar, we had to take pictures of the experiment exploding. Once the explosion was over, we had to pack up and clean the equipment.

- when a volcanic eruption occurs, lava comes out and spreads all over the land. It happens when a molten rock called magma rises to the surface. Magma is formed when the earth's mantle melts
(the experiment was small and it only worked once on our first attempt, I consider that a fail because it only worked once) care

For the energizer we played rubbish relay, we got split into four teams and each person had to attempt to throw a scrunched up paper into the rubbish bin. I really enjoyed this Kiwi Can session because I learnt many new things and I had lots of fun!!

Kiwi Can - T3, WK9

Today room 7 had Kiwican with Mr Numia in room 12. We learnt the meaning's of Perseverance and Resilience. For the energizer we played ball tag which was boys vs girls, the team starting with the ball had to try and eliminate their opponents. For the activity we played picitionary, mr Numia split us into 4 groups and they first four going up had to draw out the specific word mr said and the team who guesses it right gets a point. In Kiwican I learnt perseverance means keep trying and resilience means bouncing back and coping with challenges.

Room 7 - Kiwi Can

Today Room 7 had Kiwi Can with Mr Numia and Miss Lily. We firstly started off by greeting them with Malo e lelei, then we got into a circle and talked about the topic and new theme, perseverance. After they explained the new theme we got split up into four groups and played our energizer, perseverance challenge. Each group had a corner to go into and try accomplish the activity that was given. After the energizer we got back into the circle and talked more about the theme and topic, they asked more questions and we answered. After that we went into the activity and we played Blind square. We got back into the same groups and formed a circle, then we had to hold hands, close our eyes, and when Mr Numia said a shape to make we had to make it with our eyes closed. After the activity we played GKQ then got into the points and headed back to class.
