Our Transpiration Experiment

Recently, room 14, tried an experiment to see if we could see a plant doing transpiration!!! Guess What, we were able to see what it looks like, why don't we show you:
Here are some steps if you want to do this Experiment:


  • 1 large bag
  • 1 rubber band
  • 1 plant

  1. Find a sturdy plant.
  2. Get you bag and put it on top of you plant. DO NOT BRAKE OFF THE STEM! 
  3. If you have a tight rubber, then just wrap it on the bag once, make sure know air can get in or out
Watch your plant as the condensation comes along and if that happens then you did this right .

Compass direction and co-ordinates on a graph.

The last few weeks Room 14 has been working on compass directions and co-ordinates on a graph. For example we had a sheet with a graph on it and we had to put a dot where we thought the dot needed to be the teacher gave us co-ordinates so we could find the place where the dot. For the compass directions we had to follow what directions the teacher gave us for example go north east 5 squares. Here is a photo.

Good Friends And Bad Friends

In our class community circle we have been learning about the differences of being a good friend and a bad friend. We split into our animal groups with a piece of paper and strip of paper with a sentence that either  a good friend or a bad friend would do. Here are some photos of us working together to make a poster:

On the 5th of June room 14 had there class assembly.We did lots of things such as dance,sing,share learning and more. Our favourite part of the assembly was the brain break dance-Dynamite.On this movie there is a video of us doing it and we also shared netball and Soccer skills,individual and class poems,war letters,poppy art and sign language songs that we learnt in class.We really enjoyed our assembly, please watch our video of our assembly!!!.

Last week we had our assembly.One favourite part was when our class did the brain break because I love to dance. I also liked doing the soccer skills skit because o got to kick the ball around. One of the scary things i did was being the host of the assembly. But the best thing was having morning tea!
From Jack
