We had fun working as engineers this week. We designed sail boats made from recycled materials. We then tested them for speed. We made small changes and then raced them against each other in the water tray. We had daily winners at the end of Aistear play time and on Friday we ran our final boat race to find the overall winning boat. We discovered that the boat with the heaviest mast went faster than the lighter ones.
We all had a great first week in school:
- We made new friends
- We went to visit the school garden
- We identified different leaves on the trees
- We sorted natural objects
- We played in our small world towns
- We enjoyed books in the library.
What a great first week!
