Water rockets recounts.

A man named Greg came to our school and taught us a few things about water rockets.  We launched a few and we learnt that if the rockets have a heavy nose cone they go  a lot higher and faster but if they have a light nose cone it doesn't go that fast or high.

I made my water rocket by myself.  Some of it came out really bad but the good thing was I got a lego man.  Then we launched like 10 or 20 rockets.  Every time we had to do a count down ...5...4...3...2...1... BLAST OFF!

By Tim 

5, 4, 3, 2, 1 blast off.  If you make a tall water rocket try not to kill yourself or anyone else.  If you make a small one with a hard nose cone it will launch up fast and good.  I made a small water rocket but we haven't launched it yet.

On Monday at school after morning tea we went to launch some rockets with "oh great one".  There was one that went over the sick bay and then it nearly hit someone in the head!

By Nikao

I launched  my rocket.  It is black on the body and has yellow tape so I could decorate it and put my name on it.  When I saw them  choose my rocket I did not want to launch it.  But then after I had launched it I wanted to launch it again!  It went and it just touched the cloud.

 Today Mr Fawcet came to visit us.  He is an expert water rocket maker.  He taught us how to make awesome water rockets.  We even got to watch them being launced.  Gravity is AMAZING!

We watched the water rockets being projected into the air.
5, 4, 3, 2, 1  BLAST OFF!

A melting pot of cultures

This term in Social Studies, we have been learning all about the cultures within our families and those who come into the area we live in.  We all made a family tree at home and here they are displayed in Room 1. Every family has a their own culture.  We all have similarities and differences.  It's great learning about each other.   What a great job Room 1.
