We discussed the difference between a company logo and a specific biscuit’s packaging design as well as creating our own bags using origami.

Geography - Exploring where rainfall goes when it falls to earth 💧🌧🪨
We learnt that when rain falls from the sky to the earth it can continue to travel down as run off or by infiltrating and then percolating the material it falls on. We investigated which materials rain might infiltrate and what my cause rain to run off.
Science - Understanding how particles are different in solids liquids and gases! 🧪🧪
In science today children were left fascinated and highly curious about how our world is made! They understood that everything in our world is made from different types of particles and atoms. After grasping how particles are arranged differently in solids, liquids and gases they began to ask many philosophical questions such as:
Is god made of atoms?
Who made particles?
