Engineering - Catapults

Auroa School has started a unit on Engineering this term. Room 4 started by making a basic catapult with popsicle sticks. We then looked at making alterations to our catapult to get it to go higher and launch a greater distance. Here is Ryan with the catapult his group created to launch a missile the highest.

Popcorn Haiku

This week Mrs Richardson brought her popcorn maker into school. We watched the popcorn cook and then tasted some. We used our observations to write our first Haiku poem. A haiku poem is a short poem with three lines. The first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables and the last line has 5 syllables. Here is Jayda's haiku poem. Great job Jayda!
