God Title Page

In R.E we learnt about God.  Each of us made a God title page introducing Him.  We learnt about who He is, what He is like and did an acrostic poem about God.  Here is what my title page looks like.

This week is Cook Island Māori week.  We have done a lot of activities and learnt the sign of the cross in Cook Island Māori.  Some of the activities we did was myths, facts worksheets and more.  The myth that we learnt about was Ina and the shark. The Myth is about Ina and Tinirau. The myth is about why sharks have a bump on their head. This week has been great so far.  Here is what our Cook Island wall looks like.

Water Science

Today we did a water experiment with ice and salt.  We got balls of ice in a bowl and then our teacher came around the tables with dye to put on the ice.  After we got the dye she came around with salt and we got to sprinkle it on the ice.  When we sprinkled the salt on the ice it started to crack, the dye helped us see the cracks.  We waited a bit until we got to go outside to crack the ice.  After we got outside it was time to crack them.  Each team went at different times.  Our group was last.  When we went we threw the ice up into the air and let it smash to the ground.  The bigger ones smashed more as the weight is heavier.  Because of this there was more force as it was falling.  Here is a picture.
