Into the Cave Writing

On a sunny morning a little family went on an adventure in a cave.
When the ground was shaking and their little family tried to get out but the rocks fell so they ran to the the left. Then they ran to the right but it was full of rocks so they tried calling for help but they left their phones in their car.

While they were waiting for someone to come and rescue them they started to. Get hungry so they looked in their bags and they had water and sandwiches for lunch. Some of them got bored of waiting so they checked in their if they
bought some toys.

Mum and dad started to get sleepy so they closed their eyes for little bit then. They heard someone digging the rocks out and they saw a little hole on the
side of the cave. When they got out they didn’t know what to say so they invited them for dinner to say thank you when they finished their dinner they walked them out  and they said good bye.

And they never went to the cave again

One day there was 4 friends that wanted to go to the beach. Their  names were Luck, Willie, Richey and Coby. They could hear splash of the water and the little sound of sands and people playing and eagles talking. Luck and Coby went for a little swim at the beach. While the others will go and lie  down on the sand. Coby and Luck finished swimming for 10 minutes.

When they finished swimming Luck, Willie, Richey and Coby went for a walk around the beach. Luck called to his friends, “ Willie, Richey and Coby I found something”, They bursted out to look for Luck. When Willie, Richey and Coby found Luck they wanted to know what was happening. So Luck said, “ Look I found a cave”, So Willie, Richey and Coby was so excited so they ran inside to see what was inside.

So Luck, Willie, Richey and Coby went to have a journey around the cave. They could see spider webs on the corner and rocks all over the ground. Willie was running all over like a monkey. While they were walking they got lost they got really scared and sad. Richey felt like crying and confused. Coby remaindered he brought his phone. He rushly got out his phone and called his other friend name Lorenzo. When Lorenzo heard the news he got his rope and started to drived to the beach. When he got there he got his rope and started to ran around the beach and up the hill. When he saw the cave he looked around the cave and started to shout out their names. When Lorenzo found them. He followed the rope and started to found his way out. They were so so so happy they didn't know what to say to Lorenzo. They could feel the breeze coming to there face. They were so HAPPY!!!.

PES Olympics Day 2016

Last week the whole school went outside onto the Pt England School field. We made the Olympics rings by standing in circles and putting plates over our heads. I was the red plate. Then our teacher Mr Baxendine and Mr Somerville flew a drone over us and videoed the Olympic rings.

We also spent the day in teams where we had to compete in 7 different games. They were a bit hard but the hardest one was the Tug of war and football. My favourite bit was Dodgeball, Handball and Volleyball. It was funny when I fell over at Volleyball.

Team 4 - Science Exploration Day! Dry Ice

Today, we had a day where we busted myths! We had a lot of fun experimenting to learn about the scientific method and changes between solids, liquids, and gases.

We completed a 3-way rotation. In these photos, we are exploring sublimation (changing from a solid to a gas). We used dry ice to show this change in state through a number of experiments.


Did you know that dry ice is a solid and has a temperature of -78.5 degrees celsius? That is 78.5 degrees colder than frozen water (ice)!

It is so cold that whoever handles the dry ice has to wear gloves to protect their hands from the cold!


In these first 3 photos, we showed a build up of gas as the dry ice went through sublimation by created a detergent bubble over the bucket.


Here, we added dry ice to water to show the release of a gas during sublimation.


In these photos, we compared a balloon which had been blown up by using our breath (left), and a balloon which had been blown up by the gas created using dry ice (right). The balloon on the right was much heavier so it hit the ground first when dropped. You can also see that the balloon on the left is see-through where as the one on the right is not.


We then explored the result of mixing detergent, warm water and dry ice. It created a foam made up of lots of bubbles which turned into a gas when popped!


We finished by creating a blog post showing our learning. Check out Ayla's learning here!

Today we were doing rotations we had 3 rotation this is the last rotation I came too. In this rotation we were using dried ice and applying it to warm water.

This term we are looking at science - the material world. So that means we are going to be Myth Busters and perform a lot of science experiments focussing on the changing states or matter, especially looking at solids, liquids and gases. It's going to be very exciting!
