Cooking up a storm

We  had lots of fun making pizza. We were able to choose our own ingredients. Everyone used pizza bases except for Max. He chose to use pita bread. They were yummy and very crunchy.

Self portrait

Bradley has worked very hard on his pencil sketch of himself. Doesn't it look amazing.

Magnetic Race Track

We have been creating a race track with magnets as obstacles. We have to navigate through our course trying not to attract other magnets. Some magnets have a stronger pull than others and it can be quite tricky to get our magnet race car around the track without crashing.

Google Draw

We have been busy learning how to use Google Draw. We have been making brainstorms by selecting shapes and adding a Text box to write our fantastic ideas in. We now can add colour to the shapes and make it more attractive and stand out.

Trees for survival

Today we drove out to Clevedon to plant 500 native trees. The trees are to help the environment get back to normal. They provide great shade for the stream and help the ecosystem. It was such a great day! A slide show will be up shortly.

Hooping it up!

We are training very hard getting ready for ribbon day. We have been working on our Team work and passing skills. Some students are getting a lot better at shooting!
