Our Inquiry Unit this term is all about how things move and how/why they move in different ways? Does size, shape and other factors determine how things move?
We have lots of investigating to do…
Welcome back everyone!
Stay tuned for an exciting Term 2….
Yesterday we had such a fabulous day at Williamstown beach. The bus picked us up and took us to the park first for a snack. Then we walked across the road to the beach and boy was it a beautiful day for the beach! We got into small groups and had an explore along the sand. The water felt nice and cool on our feet. We found lots of interesting things like seaweed, crabs and sea snails. We then had a play, built sand castles and had our lunch. Before we went home we had some races on the sand. That was a lot of fun! What an amazing day!
On Tuesday the Preps had fun exploring water. We learnt about how it moves, how we can make it flow fast or slow, how to blow bubbles, how we can measure volume and lots more!
In the last few weeks we have been learning about water. We have learnt about bubbles and some ways that water moves, and last week we were learning about floating and sinking. The Preps were given only a few materials with which to make their own boats. Today we tested the boats to see if they would sink or float on their own and holding marbles. Most of the boats floated which was exciting, only a few sunk to the bottom.
