Welcome to Room 19's Blog for 2016. We are a Year 1 class at Pt England School, set in beautiful Point England, Auckland, New Zealand. This year we will be learning reading, writing and maths all on our iPads. Make sure you keep checking in with us and see how we are progressing throughout the year. We will be sharing as much as possible and look forward to reading your wonderful comments!

Today Room 19 explored solids, liquids and gases by making playdough! We began by looking at a recipe and writing down all the ingredients and measurements we needed. We talked about which ingredients were solids, which were liquids and watched how the water turned into a gas when we boiled the jug to make our boiling water. Next the fun began...in groups we took turns measuring, mixing and kneading the playdough. Once we had made a big ball we shared it out equally and added whatever colour food colouring we wanted. Some of us even decided to see what would happen when we mixed different colours together!

We are in our final term and are finishing the year with a BANG by looking at states of matter and all the changes that occur in science. Last week we talked about hot/cold and heating/freezing so what better way to experience what freezing looks, feels and tastes like than by eating some ice blocks!
