Thanks to all of our fantastic coaches and supporters! We are loving playing touch on a Thursday afternoon!

Buddy Long Ball

On Friday afternoon, we took our little buddies out to teach them a new game. It was great to see the kids helping each other and explaining the rules. What a great way to spend a sunny afternoon!

Group Writing

Today we started looking at a creative writing unit. As part of our introduction to the unit, we wrote group stories. (each person writes a sentence then passes the pen on)

Here is an example of what we came up with:
My new friend is a robot and his name is Frank. He likes to help people with jobs. One day he betrayed me by destroying the town. I went to a factory to ask a scientist to re-programme him to be a good robot. Frank rebuilds the town and he builds lots of shops. The next day he went shopping for some new high heels and make up.
(Rylie, Maggie, Olivia, Hannah and Jock)

Sometimes it can be tricky accepting others ideas and where they want the story to go. A very interesting activity!

Force and Friction

Today we have been experimenting with different surfaces and how friction changes how fast an object moves. We picked 8 different surfaces to roll a marble across. We worked out that the marble moved faster along the smoother surfaces. In science, this means the less friction from the surface the faster the movement!
