Three rally cars came to visit Brightwater School this morning. One of the drivers, Kieran Hall used to go to Brightwater School. Ben Hunt went to Wakefield School and Dominick Unterberger went to Richmond School. They are all taking part in the last stage of the National Championship. They spoke about how they got into car rallying and answered some questions. Then we went outside to look at the cars. Some children got to sit in the cars. We all got posters and maps. Some of us hope we can go and watch this weekend.

On Monday afternoon Room Four made a volcano in the sandpit. We made a sand castle. We put a plastic cup in the top. We mixed 3 tablespoons of baking soda with half a cup of water and a few drops of food colouring in the plastic cup. Then we poured 1 teaspoon of vinegar in the cup. The mixture frothed up and flowed over the top of the cup and down the sides of our sand volcano. We added vinegar lots more times and every time it flowed over. We even went back the next day and added some more vinegar and it flowed over again.

After playtime today all the Junior Syndicate went to the school hall. We didn't know why we had to go there but while we were singing a song Ronald McDonald walked in and gave us all a big surprise. He had trouble putting up his stand. When he finally got it standing up he clipped a large book onto the stand. Mrs Woodward read the story and Ronald acted it out. When he hung his washing out the wind blew one of his red and white stripey socks away. He had to go and look for it.
He taught us some safety rules when he looked for his sock.
Always wear your seatbelt. Make it click
Walk on the house side of the footpath.
Watch out for sneaky driveways.
Stop Look and Listen before you cross the street.
Finally he got to the school and we saw the sock on his back.
It was a special sock because it had eyes. He left the sock at Brightwater School to remind us about Road Safety.
