Spooky Sheep Meat

This week we went to the Life Ed caravan for lessons about how our body systems keep us alive and healthy. Then we did a scientific language experiment about kidneys and hearts. We had to observe the real body parts and disect them (that means cut them up). Then we got to choose any kind of DLO that we wanted to create to share our memories.

Little chunks of lamb heart sizzling in the hot pan
Award moments approached when Mrs B was coming to us
Many people were scared by the heart
Blood vessels were still in the meaty muscle
Here was a smooth reddish heart, no longer pumping any more like it used to
Everyone was frightened by the spooky meat from sheep
“Anyone want some sheep heart?” asked Mrs Munford
Revolting sheep blood leaking on the plate
Today we have seen organs from a dead sheep .

5 Senses Writing

Kia Ora 
We have been learning how to write using:  see, feel, hear, smell and taste. 

The Old Boat.

The lake was flooded with water. My ears heard the sound of the waves crashing into shore. My cheeks could feel the bite of the cold wind .The lake smelt like fish.

Cross country

Kia ora everyone 
Yesterday was Cross Country. We have to do it once a year. It's the hardest run in the whole year. Seniors had to do two laps with other schools in our age group. Here's a photo of the seniors of all the schools we faced. You can't see me because the boys had to line up at the back.

Learning how to write reports about a scientific experiment.

Kia ora.
We are having a science fair this term so we needed to learn how to write a report about a scientific experiment. Our teachers chopped a piece of scientific writing into bits and we had to sort them out into the right order. We had to match the structure clues with the correct sentences and paragraphs. It was tricky. When we were finished we used the report to carry out a floating and sinking experiment using Blutack.The Blutack wouldn’t float unless we squeezed  it into the shape of a boat. It was fun. Here is a picture.
