Rockets at Tamaki College

 On Friday after technology LS2 had to stay because we were excited to create fun rockets with Mr Dunn. This term we got to make rockets at Tamaki College. When we went into the classroom everyone quickly went into groups before we started anything, Mr Dunn presented a D.L.O on rockets. Now this D.L.O, our group had to come up with a prediction. At the end we had to find out if it supported our prediction in the beginning. It was very fun making our Straw Rocket so when we are learning rockets we know what to do with the learning of Mr Dunn's.

Tahuna Torea Visit By Cecillia, June and Jessie

Yesterday at lunchtime we went to have lunch at Tahuna Torea. Once we got there we had lunch, everyone was having fun. Why we went to Tahuna Torea? because its linked to our topic for reading we are learning about Godwits. First we explored was the beach where the Godwits come after that we waited until it was our turned to explored the wet lands where the Godwits find there food. LS2 learnt a lot and where Godwit's migrate. Godwits migrate from New Zealand to Alaska that would take them 8 days to get there but they would need to go to Australia than Japan then Alaska. So they are really fast to fly to Alaska. It was really interesting learning about the Godwit and where they Migrate.
