A science experiment

Today room 2 and room 4 did some science experiments.

 First we poured the water into a tall glass cup.

 Next we carefully placed a green and red ice cube in the glass cup. The green ice cube slowly started to melt.

The  red  strings was heavier than the green so the red went down faster. Coloured strings began to form teardrops at the top of the ice cubes.

The Amazing El Grego

This dizzly morning all of Burnham school went to the school hall to see the amazing El Grego the magician.

El Grego used his magic tricks to tell us that bulling at school isn't cool. I was not exited as others because I have seen the show before.

The best trick that El Grego preformed was the floating wooden table. There were no wires that I could see helping El Grego move the table.

Another trick that puzzled me was the silver bucket that was continuously filled with water. There was no way he was able to fill the bucket with water.

The trick that I understood was the talking picture. I saw El Grego's fingers move when the picture talked. There must have been a lever on the bottom of the picture.

Even though I wasn't excited at first to see El Grego. The amazing flying table was absolutely awesome and had me in bewilderment.

Invitation To Travel to Mars

Invitation to Mars 

Dear Sarah and Reilly,

I don’t expect you will come to Mars, but I’m inviting you to go to Mars.

You will need to bring Soda because I have heard that Mars’s temperature is 2896 degrees. Also you will need a lava lamp because it gets rather dark when the stars are not around. I hope you bring your teddy bear because it gets quite lonely when the aliens don’t talk to you.
I expect to see giant nits and bacon strips.

The launch time is at 3.00pm and the date is on Sunday. Please can you R.S.V.P me by Saturday. 

Thanks Isobel

Tiki Head Draw

A traditional Tiki of New Zealand is rounded than the ones we attempted. We tried to systematically  drew a Tiki that had a Pacifica feel.

What is a Tiki-

The term tiki is applied to carved human figures generally, both by the Maori and by other polynesians. The name possibly has some connection with the myth of Tiki, the first man created by Tane. On the other hand tiki or tikitiki is also a general term for carving in many parts of polynesia, as, for instance, in Niue, where the Tiki myth is unknown and human figures were not carved. In New Zealand, however, tiki is usually applied to the human figure carved in greenstone as a neck ornament. The full name is hei-tiki
