ANZAC ceremony

For the past 2 weeks, Ruapotaka School students have been learning about ANZAC.

Today we gathered together and participated in our school ANZAC ceremony to remember the soldiers and all the people who fought in the war. 

On behalf of room3, Paea and Emeline wrote a letter to the soldiers to thank them and shared it with the rest of the school. 

 "Dear soldiers,
Thank you for fighting for our country. We will remember you. 
From room 3"

We can go to Panmure or Auckland Museum in Domain to attend ANZAC service on April 25th.

Lest we forget.

Science Experiment

This week we did a very exciting science experiment. The aim of this experiment was to see what happens when we boil the coke. Before we started the experiment, we made predictions. We predicted that it might change colours, make lots of bubbles, it might blow up, pop like a popcorn, or it might disappear.

First, we need coke, pot, spoon, and a burner to do this experiment.
Then, we poured in a cup of coke into the pot and turned on the burner.

It started to make lots of bubbles!

Miss Min stirred the coke so that nothing sticks on the pot.


Look! All the liquid that is in coke dissolved and only the sugar was left. Coke became thick and sticky. When it cooled down, it became hard like a lolly! There are lots of sugar in coke so lets drink water and milk instead!
