Pōhutukawa Team Newsletter - Term 3, Week 4, 2017

This term, the students in Team Pōhutukawa are involved in a Science/Technology/Drama/Social Studies interchange. One of the topics that the students are learning about is chemistry.

In chemistry, the students are exploring the difference between physical and chemical change by conducting a variety of exciting science experiments.

Here are some photos of their experiments:

These students are learning how soap makes things clean.

These students are studying super-absorbent polymers that can absorb over 200 times their mass in water.

These students are conducting tests to determine which substances are acids and bases.

These students are conducting a colour change experiment.

These students are learning how chemistry applies in the kitchen.

Egg Cartons

If you have any spare egg containers, please send them in for one of our up and coming challenges. 


It's getting to that time of the year where pens, pencils and glue sticks generally start to deplete. Can you please talk with your child about which items they might need to stock up on and send them to school. Thank you very much.
