In Integrated Studies we are learning about Buoyancy which is sinking and floating. Sinking is when a objects goes under the surface. Floating is when a object stays above the surface. Objects that float is lighter than the water. Objects that sink is heavier than the water.

We had a experiment that related to our topic. Mrs Tui filled a huge tub full of water and got objects for us to throw in, and see if that object either sinks or floats.

This is a picture of our experiment!

What I've learnt in Maths

In Maths I've learnt easier and faster strategies to solve equations and problems.
e.g. Step 1. 9 X 7 =
Step 2. 10 X 7 = 70
Step 3. 70 - 7 = 63

I enjoy doing Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction.

Now that I've learnt many strategies I am hoping that my levels will change and that I make progress.

The Coming of the Holy Spirit

During Religious Education we've been talking and learning about the Holy Spirit and his descend to the Apostles on Pentecost Day.

The Holy Spirit gave the Apostles warmth, strength and courage to continue to preach the Good News of Jesus. They spoke in different languages and were understood by many.

Today we are Jesus' Apostles, we need to continue to proclaim the Kingdom of God.
