mum brought a wedding cake and some food. At church my uncle Afa
brought a Dj to download some songs to dance. My uncle told the 
Dj to turn on the song louder. We danced and had lots of fun.

Porridge Making (Heat on the Move)

This Term for Topic we are looking at Heat on the Move and then relate it to Transportation (Simple Mechanisms) that is how heat contributes towards movement of machines. 

So to start off our Junior syndicate thought to make Porridge so that children can see how heat travels from the stove element to the pot and then gets the porridge cooked. 

Kids really had fun as they got to experience a great deal from Writing the method they think would be used to cook the porridge (the ingredient list was provided). Then taking them to the Kitchen, cooking the porridge and eating.

Please do come back and read the experience some of the kids shared during Writing lesson after eating the Porridge!


WRITING BEFORE THE PORRIDGE WAS MADE






IN THE KITCHEN










NOW AND THEN WE MOVED IN CIRCLES TO SEE WHAT WAS HAPPENING BUT FOR SAFETY REASONS WE HAD TO SIT DOWN.

Our Guided Inquiry Presentation

On Wednesday was our presentation for the Guided Inquiry Learning. That is whatever we learnt in Term 1 we had to come up with few questions to work in Term 2 by researching and presenting it to parents and other junior classes as they rotated among different classes.

It was quite interesting as apart from gaining confidence we learnt a lot from different classes presentation. Most importantly we learnt in which areas we need to work harder and get better at.

Our questions were as follows:



Images from the Boat groups presentation........





Images from the Helicopter groups presentation.......





Images from the Gondola groups presentation.......





Followed by images from the Chairlift groups presentation......





Rotation = Parents, teachers and kids joining in at different times.....
