Hope you all had a FABULOUS weekend!

Remember, our Science Fair is THIS WEEK!!!  Please make sure your child's science experiment ingredients are enough for AT LEAST two experiments!  And please send this to school AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, then we won't have any tears on Friday of children who forgot their ingredients or boards at home!

This is going to be A LOT OF FUN!!!  So please come over in the morning - in the hall, or in the afternoon - in Room 13, to come and have a look at our AMAZING projects!

Thanks so much for everyone involved who helped in any way possible, this means THE WORLD to these kids.

Good day Room 13 parents and students,

We are almost done with our first week without Mrs van Zyl and I can honestly say that I think everything went really well!  Thank you so much for everyone who came to introduce themselves, for the chocolates and for the notes - I really do feel very welcome and look forward to teaching all the wonderful students in my class.

I want to encourage all parents to please come and see me or email me if there are any areas of concern or anything that you wish to bring under my attention.

We are definitely going to have a FANTASTIC rest of the year, I am really looking forward to all the fun activities I have planned for the classroom.

Regards
Melanie

Amazing Science in Room 13

For the last few weeks we have been working at school and at home on our science projects. Here are a few pictures and videos of students testing their experiments at school.

My science experiment is called Milky Magic. I choose this experiment because it looked like fun and I loved the colours.

My experiment is about Acids and Basis. I liked the idea of changing colours so I choose purple cabbage leaf water as the indicator.

Science Experiments

Today our science experiment was all about Fizz Balloons. 

We needed:
•baking soda
•a balloon
•a plastic bottle
•some vinegar

Method:
1. Pour 3 to 5cm of vinegar into a plastic bottle.
2. Use a funnel and add about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to the vinegar.
3.Quickly place the neck of the balloon over the end of the bottle.
4. Watch wha happens.

Why is this happening:
Baking soda is a substance called a base. Vinegar is a substance called an acid. When bases and acids combine they create new substance. In this experiment carbon dioxide is created. Carbon dioxide is a gas; the gas leaves the bottle and blows up the balloon.

Here is our video to show you.
