Learning about the water cycle.

In room 3 we have been learning all about the water cycle.  We have learned about the 4 important parts of the water cycle - evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection.
Today we talked about precipitation.  Each of us had a cloud.  We held the clouds and described how they felt.  Here are some photos of us.

The clouds felt;
Soft, fluffy, light, cuddly, warm, ticklish.
We then talked about what would happen when we put them into some water.  Look at the photos of us putting our clouds in water and making it rain.  The clouds felt;
wet, cold and heavier than before.

A Surprise in Room 3!!

This morning we all arrived at school to find a big, red box tied up with a ribbon in our classroom.  We passed it around and some of us had a guess as to what we thought was inside.
"It's a t.v," said Ruby.
"It's a jack-in-the-box," said Leon.
"I think there are some hot wheels cars inside," said Hauli.
"It's a plane," said Malachai.
"It's Batman!" said Jaden.
"It's a fire car," said Luciano.
"It's a princess doll and crown," said Prachi.
"It's a big doll," said Prisha.
"It's a big puzzle," said Susan.
"It's a spiderman costume," said Daniel.
"It's a phone," said Sienna-Rose.
"It's a Barbie costume," said Johan.

We opened the box and guess what was inside!!  It was a great, big teddy bear!!  There was a letter too.  The bear was called Charlie Bear and he has come to visit Room 3.  Look at the pictures of us cuddling Charlie Bear.
