Rēwena parāoa (literally, "leavened bread," also spelled rewana) is a traditional Māori sourdough potato bread.
To conclude our classroom celebration of Matariki, we made Réwena bread and baked it in the hall kitchen, then ate the bread for lunch.
It was DELICIOUS! (But Mr Dobson thought it needed a touch more salt!)
We have begun an investigation into the temporary and permanent changes of substances. We looked at what happens when bicarbonate of soda is combined with a weak acid (vinegar)
What did we see?
What did we hear?
What did we smell?
Could we get the baking soda or vinegar back after the chemical reaction?

For optional homework this week, the 'make and create' option was to make a boat that floats and bring it to school to share. We had some amazing boats arrive at school this week and all took the waters of the classroom sink to prove their sea-worthiness!
|Ella also shared with us the crystal she has been growing!|

An article from Stuff.co.nz:
The ability to persevere and recover quickly from setbacks – heartbreak, illness, redundancy – is one of the best skills to have in your emotional arsenal. Childhood is a great place to develop resilience, but how does a parent get that ball rolling?

Finn and Inaki both rose to the "make something useful from rubbish" homework challenge this week, and brought their creations to school to share!
Inaki made a foot pedal rubbish bin out of an old milk bottle!
Well done boys- you are demonstrating outstanding creative thinking!
