The Nutcracker

Holly has proven time and time again what an amazingly skilled dancer she is. It was so exciting to hear her share about her night performing in the Nutcracker with the Imperial Russian Ballet Company. We are so proud of you Holly!!

Science Inquiry

In preparation for our Pae Ake Science Day in Week 6, we kicked off the Explore section of our Science Inquiry learning with a session on acids and bases. Excitement levels were high as they learned to form a hypothesis and conducted their first fair test!

Check out some of the Wonderings the class came up with after they were done experimenting. I predict we might have some future scientists in LC11.

Why does acid blow up?  - Lucas Warren

What happens when you mix an acid and a base? - Toby, Troy, Malakai, Tristan

Why did the base turn green instead of blue? - Amelie

How do the colours change? - Julian and Corbyn

Why does it stink? - Lily and Yuzuki

What is an acid? - Rueben

Adopt a Turbo 

Today Turbos player Heiden Bidwell-Curtis came to visit us and talk to about some of the challenges that he faces and how he overcomes them. He talked about setting goals and how these worked to keep him motivated.He said that he has his goals written down and put up in his house so that he can see them everyday. We then challenged him to step outside of his comfort zone and play a game of hockey with the Pae Ake team. It was so much fun and great training for our Pae Ake Olympics Day!!

Next it was poster signing time!!! We were all pretty impressed with how quickly he could sign 100 posters so that we all got our own to take home!! Thanks for the visit Heiden. Hopefully a few of us can get out to see him playing in their home game this weekend. 

Our Olympians

Micah's uncle has been over in Rio for the Olympics working as a physio for some of our Olympians. He has been sending us some fantastic photos to help motivate us in our Inquiry learning! See if you can challenge yourself to name any of these Olympians.
