We are a Year 2 Class in sunny Richmond at the top of the South Island. Our teachers are Mrs Bryant and Mrs McTague. We hope you enjoy sharing our blog and seeing what we have been up to. We love to hear from you so your comments are always welcome.
Testing different powders found at the scene of the crime!
We also had to have a go at setting the volcano to erupt!
We were extremely lucky to have a visit from Nicola Gibellini last week to teach us some science. We learnt all about being a forensic scientist and how they take different samples to catch real life criminals! We took our fingerprints and worked out what patterns we had on our fingers, we tested our felt pens on litmus paper to work out which pen was used in the ransom note and we even looked at our hair under the microscope. This was such an exciting afternoon and we all felt very privileged that Nicola wanted to come and teach us. Thank you very very much Nicola - you are welcome back any time at all!
