We are learning about acids and carbonates. Today we made Sherbet Fizz. First we put some icing sugar into a bowl. We tasted it. It tasted sweet. Next we put raro into the bowl and mixed it. We tasted it - it tasted really sweet. Then we put baking soda in. It was sour! Lastly we put some tartaric acid in. It was YUCK! It started to bubble in our mouths! Miss Parton brought some orange juice and we put it in the sherbet fizz. It bubbled and fizzed! The bubbling and fizzing was the carbon dioxide gas. What causes the fizzing in soft drinks?

On Friday we put on our play - The Gingerbread Man for the rest of the school. We have been reading and learning about the gingerbread man in class and loved it so much we decided to do a play. Miss Parton re-wrote the play so there was super heroes, fairies and transformers in it. We had a lot of fun! Miss Parton said we were all AMAZING!! We want to know when is our next play??

In class this week we are learning some gymnastics techniques. We have learnt how to land correctly, do a forward roll and jump over a low bench using our hands and landing with our feet together. It has been a lot of fun! Do you know what the landing position is called that Megan has landed in?
We have been reading the Gingerbread Man story in class and decided to make gingerbread. First we rubbed butter into the flour mixture, then we added egg. We mixed it altogether to form a dough. We left it in the fridge for half an hour before we rolled out the dough. We used cookie cutters to make our gingerbread man shapes and baked them in the oven for 10 minutes. They smelled YUM! We then decorated them with chocolate buttons and peddles and then we ate them for morning tea! We had a really fun morning! When can we make some more???
