How many teeth altogether?

We were learning to add to 10 by counting the teeth. Look at our cool maths today with Mrs Baird. 

The Art of the AHHH-CHOOO!!!

Today we learnt that the safest way to trap a sneeze is with a tissue and bin the used tissue straight away after sneezing. Another safe way is to trap your sneeze with your hands and wash your hands straight away after. The last option is to sneeze in your elbow, this stops the virus particles entering the air but can still be spread by touch.

Heavier and Lighter

I am learning to compare the weight of two objects. We had to find 2 objects from a magazine and then place them on a seesaw to show which is heaviest. Ruby said "a strawberry mousse is heavier than a strawberry. I know the strawberry mousse is heavier because there is a lot in there".

Healthy teeth!

Today in class we learnt about brushing our teeth morning and night. We also learnt we have 10 top teeth and 10 bottom teeth. We will be learning about keeping ourselves healthy over the next two weeks in class.

Ajia and Shimila's Visit to Room 20

We got to meet a Bearded Dragon (lizard) today. Her name is Gloria and she is 6-7 years old. We got to have a touch of her. Gloria eats worms and Carrots. Sometimes strawberries!. When she gets angry her body and neck gets bigger and she turns black. When she is too hot she turns red or orange.
