The rain did not stop our fun at Mini-Mudder today. We had a great time and lots of our grown-ups joined in the fun too. It was brilliant.
We had a fantastic time at East Coast Organics Farm. We learned lots of facts about working on a farm. We had great fun.
Ms Laing was leaving us to go to a new job. We were sad to see her go but she mad her last day fun with los of wet play activities and ice-cream. Thank you Ms Laing and good luck.
The butterflies have come out of chrysalis. We released them into the garden so they can pollinate the plants which give us our food.
As part of our class topic on Framing we planted some seeds. We have also started an experiment to see if the seed can grow in different things. We filled six test tubes for our experiment:
1) red lentils and water
2) green glitter and water
3) tissue paper and water
4) cotton wool and water
6) soil and water
We are watching to see which of these will grow.
We made our own butter! Woo hoo. Watch how we did it!
We have been learning about Dairy Farming. We learned about the machines that are used to milk the cows today but we also learned how they used to milk the cows a long time ago. We pretended that rubber gloves were the cows udders and we had a go at milking the cows. It was really good fun.
We had a visit from Angie who brought lots of lovely veggies for us to try. We learned about vegetables that grow underground and above ground. We tasted lots of vegetables and we even had a wee taste of red chillies in the chilli challenge!
