Steam Engine

Yesterday we learned that to make energy we needed to change something into it. Water needed to be  turned into steam by heating it to turn a motor. Wind turns a turbine to make electricity.

Invercargill yesterday

We went to see the Capital E Theatre show called "Mr McGee and his biting flea," It was a fantastic show.
Come in to our class and see our awesome art work about the show.
At lunch time we went to Queens Park. We had to try climbing our way to the top of this structure, just like we are doing in our inquiry unit.

Jojo came to see us!

Erin has a baby possum at home. Her brother Liam went hunting with friends and shot the mother but the baby fell down. Jojo drinks milk and lives in a basket in the bathroom. He likes curling up in a woolly hat.
