The Skeletal System

Another interesting part of our bodies.....we are getting quite good at naming the bones of our skeleton.  We have loads of questions to answer during this study!

Blood!

We have been looking at blood.....fascinating!  We have learnt that it is made up of 4 components: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma.
You can see we mixed our own type of 'blood' to get an idea of the make up of blood.
We had a great informative visit from Kelly from NZ Blood Service.

Production

Time is zooming by.....we are rehearsing regularly, dancing up a storm in preparation for the school production.
Keep your eyes peeled for info!!

STEM

We looked at how to work co-operatively, making a plan.....generally listening to each other to reach a common goal.
We had the challenge of making the tallest tower from a single sheet of paper and making a structure that would hold the weight of a textbook.  We only had newspaper and sellotape!



Next we looked at corn......what a fascinating vegetable it is too.  





The end product is jolly tasty too!!

Bread Making

What better way to see yeast in action than making some bread!  Year 6s mixed, kneaded and baked a delicious batch of bread.....crusts tasty and reasonably light and fluffy in the middle (thanks to the co2 released).
A tasty way to spend in food tech!
