Egg Sitting

Last week we did egg-sitting it's when you get given an egg and have to give it all the necessities of a human. Each person has to name and make a house for their Egg. I didn't crack mine until the end of the week. Mine was called Violet because I drew Violet coloured hair on her. We did this for Keeping Ourselves Safe, this showed us how hard it is to take care of a baby and how amazing our parents did. I really enjoyed doing this.

Water Filter Science Experiment

This week for Science we did a water cleaning experiment. My friend Sophie and I did one in a group. Everyone had options to choose from out of bark, sand, cotton balls, and paper towels each group was given two containers, one with a hole in it and one without a hole. You put the one with the hole on the top and the other one on the bottom. In the top container, we put cotton balls and paper towels after we put them in we poured dirty water in.
the last step was to wait for the water to drain. But in the end, 
the water is still not drinkable. Here is how the water filters turned out.

Country Study Posters

For reading and writing, we did country studies. Each of us chose different countries to research. I did the Netherlands and I learned a lot about its traditions and different facts as well. Did you know Vincent van Gough the famous painter was born and raised in the Netherlands? Also, the Russian flag is the same colours as 
The Netherlands flag just mixed up. I chose this country because
I didn't know much about it and thought it would boost my knowledge. I think the Netherlands is really interesting!

Anzac Pamphlets

For ANZAC Day this year we made pamphlets. Me and my friend Ruby did one together. The pamphlets were about an item and it's owner's story. We decided to do a violin string. There were many books made about the owner of it including The ANZAC Violin. I thought the story of the violin was really interesting.



When the pamphlets were done we put them in red pockets. This is how ours turned out.
