Welcome to the second volume of Bootleg Blogs! In this edition we are highlighting the inspiring blog written by Helen Rennie-Younge. Helen teaches a class of enthusiastic Year 1 children and she works hard to keep her class blog up-to-date. It's such a great way of sharing with the wider community what the kids are learning. Here is just a small selection of the fun science related stuff they have been doing ...
They have recently completed a Science and Technology unit where they made their very own umbrellas! http://2008sunnybrae5.blogspot.co.nz/2013/05/science-and-technology-week.html
Working in teams they listened to one another's suggestions and tried out different ideas http://2008sunnybrae5.blogspot.co.nz/2013/05/science-and-technology-week.html
They have also done extensive work on the water cycle. They discovered ...
How we use water everyday
How important water is to every living thing
The water cycle
The importance of keeping our water ways clean
The impact of the quality of the water on animals/creatures that live within it.
Keep up the great work! We hope you'll visit Room 1's blog and post comments and questions.
