Room 10 egg challenge

Room 10 were given the challenge of designing protection for an egg so it could be dropped from a 2 metre height without cracking...but we could only use 4 pieces of paper and 8 bits of cellotape. Only 2 students were successful but we had a lot of fun!

Room 13 - Making Playdough

Room 13 decided to make some new play dough.
Here is the recipe we followed:


Romes, Vaipeka and Tristan mixed extra flour into the dough because it was too sticky.

Daerue, Bellamaya and Ale wore plastic gloves so the food colouring didn't stain their hands.

Once our play dough was all soft and squishy, we all made cookies, people and critters.
We have put our new play dough into plastic bags so it stays soft.

Rm 11's Lemonade

In Rm 11 we are learning to write different procedural writings. One type of procedural writing is a recipe. So we decided to use Miss E's lemons from home to make a delicious lemonade. Check out some of our pictures and Tron's recipe he wrote: 

- 1 cup of lemon juice
- 1 cup of sugar
- 5 cups of cold water
- 2 cups of boiled water

- Kettle
- Juice jug
- Chopping board
- Measuring cup
- Knife

Firstly get 1 cup of sugar and pour the cup with the sugar into a juice jug. Next you pour the 2 cups of boiling water into the jug very slowly and mix it with your mixing spoon. The hot water will make the sugar dissolve. The sugar will need to be like a syrup. 

After cut the lemons you have into halves. When your done grab 1 half of a lemon and put your hand over the measuring cup and squeeze it and the seeds will land in your hands. Finally tip in the juice and give it a a good mix with your mixing spoon. Now your lemonade is ready to be cooled. When it is cool it is drinkable. That's how you make lemonade.
