Look what we've been doing on Fridays!

Some of us really enjoyed feeling this cornflour gloop drip and drizzle through our fingers. Some of us didn't!  
Is it solid or is it liquid?
 We now have new pets in our classroom.  Jorja-Rose and her Dad brought in this cool aquarium with lots of tadpoles inside!  She told us they like to eat boiled cabbage or lettuce.  They won't eat too much as they know when they are full!  
Keep watching to see how they change.

Check out our cool patterned zebras!  They are going to a party in disguise!

We have also been busy thinking about what we know about birds.  We already know heaps.  We can even think of things that we don't think birds could ever possibly do! What do you think birds can't do?

One little duck went out one day...

Today Aniesia brought a little duckling to visit us at school.   It is a wild duckling that her Dad rescued after its Mum was hurt on the busy road. They are now taking care of it until it can look after itself!  They have bought special chick starter food for it to eat and they even let it swim in the bath!  It made a lot of noise while it visited us and we had to be very quiet so we didn't scare it too much. Thank you for sharing it with us Aniesia!

Exploring the sense of taste.

Wow! We tasted many things today.
Sour!   Sweet!   Bitter!  Salty!

We can experiment more. 
On our back bench we have interesting things to taste.

Welcome to Term 4.

Today we started back to school for the last term of the year.
Everyone was so excited to be back in class.
 There is a very busy time ahead.
We welcomed Luci to Ashley School.
So now we have 16 students in our room.

We started our look at the five senses too.
Today we talked about our sense of touch.
When the weather perks up you will find us out on the back field practicing our athletic skills.
