With the Halloween excitement last week we have investigated how different liquids react together. It was an exciting experiment for all children.

Many children find learning fractions tricky. In Room 3 we learned them through telling a story of an old man and an old woman. All children helped to make a pretend made a pizza and the pair cut it in a half to be fair. The pair chose two children and now there were four of them to share pizza. Each had a quarter and the whole class laughed about Room 3 family. It was pleasing to see that a few days later when we were learning the letter "q," Justin remembered the quarter.

What better way to investigate the phenomenon of light than making all sorts of Diwali patterns and testing them outside. With the whole class and a few of our Room 25 buddies we looked at how light goes through some materials like plastic and thin paper. When we tested light with thicker materials the light was blocked. Then the children made Diwali patterns with different surfaces like plastic, card and wood. We went outside to test our creations. It was amazing to see our colourful creations projecting on the ground. The ones made with the cardbord did not project colours but we could see the shadows.
