Next the Turtle the mouse and the crow run out to the river and they told the deer that they were scared. The three friends became four friends. The next day the turtle the mouse and the crow gathered at the river but the deer was not there. The crow flow as high as he could to found the deer. When the crow flew he saw the deer court on a hunting net the crow went down to the deer and said ‘to the deer wait there i will get the the other two that are at the river’ The turtle the mouse was there.

Science at Tamaki

On Tuesday 4 August 2015 some students from Glenbrae School
gathered at the hall and went to Tamaki College.

We went there to learn what is science and how to do science.

On Science we need to remember safety first. You need safety glasses and gloves so we don’t get hurt. To be good at science, you need to know your maths,reading,writing.  If you don’t, you will not know what to do (like how to make robots or mix chemicals).

When we arrived at Tamaki we saw Mr Malhotra. He introduced himself and showed us some robots.

First we had to look through microscope and we looked at little animals. Each group had a turn controlling the robot .

Next we made hot hokey pokey. Here are the                                         recipes:Golden syrup,Saucepan,Sugar,Baking soda.
That’s the things you need to use to make hokey pokey.

After that the science teacher gave us some hydrogen peroxide and potassium iodide. It was called elephant toothpaste. First we put food coloring in, then handwash, then hydrogen peroxide. When you put the peroxide into the cane it will pop up like a volcano eruption.

When we finished that science project we had 15 minutes left and on that 15m Mr Malhotra showed us what their students made in science - a helicopter.

Lastly we had to leave the science lab.
Ending: When we got to Tamaki i was so excited and happy and i enjoyed that science session with Mr Malhotra when we saw little animal bodies and new thing’s.
