A visit from Buddy.

Buddy the baby goat came to visit our class.  
Cherie, the farmer,  brought her orphaned baby goat to our class and taught us all about looking after him.  We got to feel his soft fluffy coat and ears.
We had a few questions....
How old is Buddy?     "3 weeks old." 
What does he eat?      "milk from a bottle every 3 hours." 
How big will he grow?       "as tall as you !  with very big horns. "
What does he like to do at home?        "climb up high on anything he can! Goats love climbing."

Whats inside planet earth? 

This term our topic focus is around planet earth and beyond with a specific study on volcanoes. 

First, we guessed what we thought the earth was made of.  

Then we learnt about what scientists think the earth is made of and made a colourful diagram to show this. 

Everyone is looking forward to making volcanoes later on in the term.

Kākāpō hub planted a tree. 

Today was tane mahuta / arbour day so we planted a maple tree to remind us of how important trees are to the world. 
We sang our school song to the tree to settle it into our school. 
We will watch our tree grow and give it water to help it along.

Dancing Ghosts!  This week we have been investigating static electricity and friction. We used a balloon to lift our tissue paper by rubbing the balloon on our hair, creating friction and then static electricity.

This is a Nano girl Kitchen Science experiment.
