Term 2 Week 10

Better late than never!  This is some of us at Moreby Cottage.  Mrs L took us there two weeks ago so we could see how people lived in the olden days.

We made our own mini Earths.  We drew things on the land, in the sky and in the sea.  Our Earth is a 3D shape, it is a sphere.  Now we have a whole lot of Earths hanging around our classroom.

We made suns.  We learnt that the sun gives us light and heat.  If we stand in the shade and then stand in the sun we can feel the heat from the sun, even though it is a really long way away.

We were trying to guess our partners number.  We used a number grid to help us see if the number was higher or lower.

We played with shadows this week.  We learnt that a shadow happens when something blocks the sun.  If you stand in a shadow it will be cooler than being in the sun. 
We played around with our shadows.  We played shadow tag.  We made short shadows and we made long shadows. Check out the long shadow Mackenzie and Elisajane made.
We made shadow art.  We blocked the sun with our bodies and then we traced our heads onto a piece of paper.  When we got back to class we coloured our shadowy heads in with lots of colours and different lines. To see some of our awesome shadow art, head over to our publishing blog.

This week we had our 90th day of school.  That means there is only ten days to go until we have our 100th day of school celebrations!  We can't wait!
