What a load of funky music!

Room 6 started to explore how we can reuse rubbish. We created some musical instruments using a variety of materials. Thanks to a generous parent we had lots of tubes and vinyl that we could use. We wrote some recounts about making our musical instruments. We are learning to add interesting words to our writing. Have a read and look at our photos to find out how much fun we had.

What a load of rubbish... what we want to know!

Room 6 has been working hard trying to define what we are going to explore to help solve our problem and key question. Thank you to those who commented on our last blog. Your comments helped direct our inquiry questions.

Scenario: PHS has a problem. The bins are full. There is no place for waste. What do we do?

Key Question: What can we rethink, reduce, reuse and recycle.

Have a look at the video to see the questions we created to help answer our key question and solve the problem.

Can you help us answer any of the questions?

Room 3's Sunflowers

Our sunflowers have been growing really big! To help them grow we used stakes and tied the plants up. They have grown really big now. Have you seen them outside room 3? The sunflowers are taller than us and they are starting to flower. Everyday we look to see how many sunflowers are out. We still water our plants and look after them. We LOVE having sunflowers outside our room.

What a load of rubbish

The year 2 students at PHS are starting an inquiry unit on rubbish and recycling. Have a look at Room 6's scrapbook to see how they started their investigation.
