Japanese Visitors

 Today we were very lucky to have some Japanese visitors. They have been at Garin College for 8 weeks. Six girls came to Room 2 to show us some origami and how to write our names in Japanese. They also read a book to us.  When they first came to NZ they couldn't read any english. We sang them a song and did an energiser. Then we went to the hall with all of the Junior Syndicate. The Japanese visitors did a dance for us then we had a try at doing the dance with them.
At lunch time they played soccer and rugby and some of the girls were skipping.
We learnt how to say hello, goodbye and thank you in Japanese.

Dancing Raisins

On Monday we poured some lemonade into some jars. Then we dropped some raisins into the lemonade. They went straight to the bottom. We watched and waited. We didn't have to wait long before the raisins started to dance.  

We decided the bubbles in the lemonade attached themselves to the raisins which made them float to the top. Then the bubbles popped and the raisins went back down to the bottom. The raisins kept dancing for about two hours.


On Wednesday Mrs Inch invited us to join the middle syndicate when Murray and Nicky Elwood came to school with their bees. 
The bees were between two pieces of glass. We could see the queen bee if we looked very carefully.

Fingerprint Monsters

We used our fingerprints to draw these monsters.

Yummy Honey

At Discovery Time today we all got to try the honey that Seth brought. We had to out margerine on our own piece of bread then use a teaspoon to drop the honey on the bread. Then we had to spread the honey out with the knife. Some of us had never spread margerine before. It tasted delicious.

Beekeeper Seth

On Tuesday Seth brought a beekeeper suit to school to show us. There was no way that bees could get inside the suit. The hood was zipped onto the body of the suit. the gloves came up over the sleeves. At the bottom of the legs there was elastic. The honey in the jar looked really yummy.
