In Week 5 we went to Auckland Museum. It was awesome. We got to see so much cool stuff like dinosaur skeletons, stuffed animals and model boats and planes. Check out the pictures:
We even got to experience what it could be like if there was a volcano. It was very scary. Check out the video of our reactions!

For Discovery Time on Friday we investigated flight. We looked at lots of different things that can fly. Some of us decided to make a kite and see if we could get it to fly. We had to Think Flexibly and Think about our Thinking to make sure that the kites we made would fly. We also Created and Innovated to make sure that are kites looked awesome when they were up in the sky! Here are some photos of us making the kites.
Here is a short video of Evangellene flying her kite!

Hi everyone, and welcome to Term 4. It looks like this is going to be another action packed term. We have Parent/Teacher Conferences in Week 3 where I will be lucky enough to meet with all the parents and caregivers and update them on how the amazing Mindful Monsters are progressing in their learning. Also in week 3, we have a Halloween Disco which I am sure will be lots of fun. In Week 7 the Busy Bees will be hosting a Disco as well as putting down a Hangi, which we can't wait for! In Week 8 there will be a whole-school cultural show which promises to be an amazing spectacle.
Remember to keep checking the blog to see all the great things that we are doing in our classroom!

In Weeks 4 and 5 we became Mad Scientists. We did lots of really cool experiments and then did some amazing writing based on them. We made our own Lava Lamps, blew up a balloon with baking soda and vinegar and even made a volcano. Our favourite experiment was when we got to make sherbet using icing sugar, citric acid, baking soda and jelly crystals. This is us enjoying the results!

We were given Thinking Flexibly as our HOM song. We thought flexibly and changed the song by adding a rap! We discovered that many of the Mindful Monsters are awesome rappers and break-dancers! We hope you enjoy watching our music video as much as we enjoyed making it!
