Maia and Jacob bring a friend

Last week Maia and Jacob brought along what they call a "caterkiller" and it has been living in Room 3 ever since.
 At first they thought it was a caterpillar...

Last Wednesday, me and some other kids went to Otago boy’s high school. We were invited to do some science in the science lab, we met the teacher and he was funny and excited that we could come and do science with him we were excited too, he told us that we would be extracting D.N.A from a kiwifruit. He told us what to do, pick a buddy and choose what each buddy would do. My buddy was Josh, I heated up some water while Josh scooped out the kiwifruit and smashed it in a bag, next we put the bag in the water to break  down the kiwifruit and then we got a bottle and tipped in the kiwifruit liquid, we had to wait for about 10 minutes before we tipped it in a test tube and put in some alcohol. We weren't allowed to shake it and finally we used a squeezy tube to collect the  D.N.A. It was super awesome! 
At the end we got to have an ice-block, mine was chocolate. I had a great time, I can’t wait to do it again next Wednesday!

My holiday in Bali

On Thursday the 28th of April I was going to the airport to go to Melbourne for a night, then go to Bali for a night and Lombok for six nights, while i was in Lombok I visited the zoo/waterpark 
I saw lots of animals from Guinea pigs to Komodo dragons. I got to ride on an elephant, feed and elephant and hug an orangoutang. After that I went to the waterpark, it was very enjoyable.

Monday Art Day

Every Monday afternoon this term we have been making papier mache birds.
So far we have made the body shape by scrunching up newspaper and wrapping it in masking tape. Then we used small pieces of newspaper dipped in glue to cover it. Then we made birds wings and a tail out of cardboard and covered them in papier mache. 
Keep an eye on our blog to see the finished products.
