Cross Country

Room 9 had a very successful day at the annual Cross Country held at our School on Wednesday.  Before the Cross Country they all set themselves a goal and most of them achieved their goal.  We had lots of placings too.
Here are a few photos from the day.

Balloon Blow-up Experiment

We are really enjoying our science experiments.  Everyone is looking forward to completing their own experiment ready for the science fair.  Here is a video of a experiment we did using baking soda, vinegar, a bottle and a balloon.
We did this experiment three times.  We change the amount of vinegar we used the second time and the amount of baking soda the second time.  More baking soda produced a bigger balloon.
As the baking soda mixes with vinegar a chemical reaction takes place and creates carbon dioxide which blows up the balloon.

Term 3

Welcome back to Term 3 - a very fun packed term with lots of things happening. We have started our science experiments ready for the science fair in week five.  We have been following the Commonwealth Games and are very proud of New Zealand.
