Peppa Pig's Christmas

Here are our finished toys that we made.
Aren't they great? 
Some of us had to change our designs a little bit to make our toys move better.

On Friday we made our very own toys that can move. 
We had help from some super parents and grandparents who did the things that we couldn't do. 
We all had our design plans to help us. Some of us made balloon cars, boats, Jack-in the-boxes, robots and yo-yo's. We had such a lot of fun deciding what to use and how to make our toys move.

Some of us were very lucky to go to Mindlab in Petone on Monday. We got to do some fantastic things with robotics and circuits and just do some really cool things.

We made a balloon rocket!
We attached a balloon to a piece of string and let the balloon go. It was so much fun watching it whizz down the string to the other end. 
We had to change our design a little bit because sometimes it didn't work very well. 
We discovered that we needed to put quite big pieces if selotape onto the balloon or else the selotape would just come off. 
We found out that the air in the balloon created a force which pushed the balloon along the piece of string like a rocket.

On Thursday we had our school Assembly.
Here we are sharing our lovely dinosaur pictures that made.
We all got to share a new cool fact that we learned about dinosaurs.
