Skittle Rainbow

Room 12 made a Skittle rainbow today!

We put yellowred, orangegreen and purple Skittles in a circle on a plate. 

Then Mrs Nelson gently poured some cold water onto the Skittles.

Then we waited and watched the colours 'melt' together to make a rainbow!

In the end, the colours mixed together and made the water brown.
It was exciting to watch!

Mixing colours

Room 12 has been learning about Primary colours. 
We know that they are blue, yellow and red and you can't make these colours.

We did an experiment called 'Crawling colours'. 
We put red, blue and yellow dye into 3 jars and plain water into 
another two jars.

Next, we scrunched up tissues and placed one end into the jar with the 
coloured dye and the other end into the jar of plain water and then we 
watched and waited...

We watched as the primary colours 'crawled' from one jar into another 
and made secondary colours!

It was really cool watching the colours crawl.
We learnt that yellow and red make orange and that red and blue make purple!

We had lots of Mums, Dads, Grandparents and family come to watch us.

Flying high

This week Room 12 read a poem about kites flying high in the bright sky, so we decided to make and fly a kite of our own out on the school field.

The wind was just right so off we went!

Here we with our kites before we flew them on the field.

We ran around on the field with our kites soaring behind us!

Some got tangled and twisted.

We had fun running around on the field with our kites.

And some got wet on the dewy grass!

Fun and Games!

Room 12 has been learning about how to play safely in our playground.

We have also been learning how to play games and how to 
share and take turns with others in our group.

On Friday, Mrs Nelson took us outside and placed us into 4 groups. 
We were given 3 cones and 1 ball and had to work together and come up 
with a new game to play and teach our classmates.

Caitlin, Isaac, Bharun and Tenny taught us how to kick the ball between the cones. If you hit the cone, you got out.

Next, Aaron, Toia, Caprice and Sonia taught us how to kick the ball at the wall. If you kicked the cone then were out and the next person had a go.

 Then Geena, Iris, Spencer and Etienne taught us how to kick the ball at the cones. The more cones you knocked over, the more points you won.

Lastly, Jujhar, Indigo, Milana and Isla taught us how to place the ball into the cone, then throw the ball from the cone to the people in your group. If you caught the ball then you got to have a turn.

We learn't so many new games and how to share and take turns with our friends. We also learn't how to make rules and play games so that they were fair and we got to teach and play our new games together

What a great afternoon!
