Go The All Blacks!!

It’s been a busy week this week at Waiouru School!  Here’s a wrap up of what’s been going on around the school via some of our class blogs …

It’s always a thrill to get a comment on your blog, please take a moment to leave one for our kids on their blogs 🙂

Baking Soda and Vinegar Experiment

Tawhio and I enjoyed watching the children from Rangatahi start their first science experiment.

This is a cross post from Rangatahi’s Blog. Please leave a comment here.
We’ve been learning about the reaction between baking soda and vinegar and today we mixed the two in a bag to see what happened.

We thought the bag would maybe explode but it didn’t. The reason the bag blew up big is because of the gas made when they react.

Here are some pictures to show what happened.

We were so lucky to have a visit from the Dr Seuss ‘subbus’ and other amazing vehicles travelling New Zealand for the ‘Variety Bash.’ It was great seeing all the characters from our favourite stories and we were grateful to receive goodies from the teams. Thank you Variety Bash!
