Swirly soap

Soap Designs Come to Life

On Friday groups of children in Room 5 started to make soap.  

Soap making

Last Friday we made soap.  It was lemongrass and lime.  The shape of the soap is a rectangle. We used white glycerin and we added pigments of green and yellow.  It was lime green and a lemon yellow. When the white glycerin melted it looked like milk. 

Teacher's Skoolstar Performance

Skoolstars recording day

I was very pleased with the improvement in singing, so I can't wait to see the edited video clip.  'Blame it on the Boogie,' is such an energetic song to sing.  You all sung your hearts out! The school will be having to shows on Wednesday 10th November.

Teacher's Don't Have Long Weekends

I spent my weekend testing out my soap skills and making a very big mess in my house.
Tomorrow I'll be starting to take groups of children through the soap making process.
My son was asking me if he could eat the Lions......they smelt so good!

Exploring Soap Design

Soap materials

Today it was exciting because all of the stuff for the soap arrived! We got to smell all of essential oils.  Some smelt really strong and some smelt very nice.  We got to hold Ms K's soap cutter and it looked very sharp!

Exploring possible soap designs

In class we have been drawing soap designs.  We will then put our designs on the wall and pick the best ones to make.  We will have to make labels to say what the smell is, what colours and if you have any drop-ins.

Ninja wears an X-strap to hold his samurai swords.  This looks like it belongs in a saber tooth tiger skull. His eyes are black and his body is very cat like which completes his  reputation, he's very mysterious.

Ninja is very stealthy and is rarely seen in the dark. Everyone knows that whenever there's trouble, he turns up, saves the scene, the leaves, but that's all the know. No one knows who he really is, where he scouts, or even who he knows. There are so many long legends about Ninja that you couldn't fit them all in microscopic writing on an A1 piece of paper.

Ninja's mask is ripped because of his (natural or implanted, again no one knows), jagged, horns.
Ninja also has a pet dinosaur. According to scientists, its a Deinonychus, they are also very confused.
Why?  Well, it's a dinosaur for god's sake.
