PENN Room 25 Term 2

We have been learning about how simple machines help us in the physical world. Our news looks at how a pulley makes it easier to lift heavy loads. Mr Jacobsen came to our space with his pulley and attached it to a bean in our space. We all got a turn at pulling up a bucket full of books. We tried lifting the bucket without the pulley and it was very hard. When we used the pulley it was much easier because Mr Jacobsen said that there are actually 2 ropes helping to lift the load.

We had a really cool afternoon. Thank you Mr Jacobsen for coming to our space.

The carnival comes to school.

We had a carnival at school. It was an exciting day with lots and lots of fun activities.(Dictated to the teacher.)

Mr. Whippy was there too.

I had a great time on the bouncy castle.
(Dictated to the teacher.)
The day ended with Santa giving us a surprise.
There was a lollie scramble and I got heaps of lollies.
(Dictated to the teacher.)
The best part of the day was the
waterslide and the water bombs.

Our Gingerbread House

Mrs. Mackinlay and the children from Rm 18 made a gingerbread house. We all took turns to make the house. We had some ginger biscuits, coloured icing and lot of lollies. (Dictated to then teacher.)

I open the box full of ingredients.
I had to be careful so that the biscuits would not break.
(Dictated to the teacher.)

We all took turns to put some yellow icing on the ginger biscuits.
It was smelling delicious. I wish we could eat it straight away.
Mrs. Mackinlay said that we could eat it the next day
because  the icing needed to harden up.
(Dictated to the teacher.)

Wow, our house looks beautiful.
Too good to eat.
(Dictated to the teacher.)
