Mix It Up

Hello we are Team Einstein, from the best class Room 1. This term for inquiry we are focusing on 'Science/& What matter means' The people in my group are Akosita & Sulieti, we are all from Room 1. We have been looking at "If we can separate a Mixture of Iron filings,  Sand & Raro" In Room 1, 6 students said YES we can separate the mixture of substances & 7 students said NO that we can not separate the mixture of substances. We have also been looking at Vocabulary and here are the vocabulary that we are focusing on, Mixture, Physical, Change, Substance & Properties. I have loved working with my Einstein group and I have loved experiencing new things and discovering that you can do anything even if you say NO. Hope you enjoy our first Inquiry lesson presentation.

P.S Thank you to Mr Wiseman for creating this presentation :-) But Team Einstein made it better !

Reflection On Term 3

This term has been a blast, I have made new friends & also meet new teachers. But most importantly I have finished this term with a 'BANG' I am proud of all of my year 8 buddies and also our year 7 brothers and sisters, you's have been an also group added to my life and I am going to miss you's when we all go our separate ways. But to those who are reading this post, this is all about Term 3, and how it went to me.

While term 3 has had some ups and downs but I loved every moment of it. The first day of term 3 was like starting the year again, it felt like home with more people surrounding me. I loved going to Tamaki College and doing Technology,  I also loved going their for one whole day to experience college life and also to get some extra tips about school. Term 3 has been awesome,  we managed to do Cross Country,  School Disco and other amazing things but we didn't manage to do our whole school Olympics Day because of the weather ... thanks alot weather.
