Yesterday the 1/2s celebrated Book Week with a ‘Booknic’ on the North Oval. We ate our lunch and shared our favourite books.
Yesterday was the grade 1/2 Book’nic day. We had lots of fun dressing up and sharing our favourite books with each other!

Next week is Book Week and to celebrate the grade 1/2s are coming together to have a Book’nic. As you would know the Book’nic is happening on Tuesday. if you or anyone in your extended family is free that day it would be great to have you come along to share the favourite books of our grade 1/2 students. Hope to see you there!
This week we have had a very busy and fun week in 1/2G, take a look at some of the things we have done!
We continued our work on our shared Science inquiry question ‘What is science?’ We investigated Earth and Space science by researching and creating planets. This was after learning about the sun and the moon earlier in the week.
Take a look at what has been happening in boys education here at Bell:
Look out Essendon fans!
Using a piece of string, a straw, a strip of sticky tape and a balloon, can you make a balloon rocket across a piece of string?
- How fast can you make the balloon rocket across the string?
- Does the size of the balloon effect how fast the balloon moves across?
- Where does the energy to move the balloon come from?
Have a look at how fast it can go on this little video: IMG_0174

The 1/2 students made some great hypotheses about what would happen when they mixed bicarbonate soda and vinegar in a water bottle with a balloon over it…
I think it will go kaboom!
I think the balloon will pop!
I think it will make a loud bang noise.
I think it will whoosh off into the sky!
Then the fun experiment began!
There was a tense atmosphere of anticipation as the balloon began to grow.
- Would the balloon explode?
- Would the classroom explode?
Fewks! We were all safe and no explosions occurred. (Better luck next time Mr.A)
Finally we drew the results. What had we observed during our experiment?
The balloon grew really big!
I thought it was going to explode but luckily it didn’t.
That was so much fun! I was so scared it would pop but it just got bigger.
What was happening? The vinegar mixed with the bar carbonate soda and made a chemical reaction. When they mixed together they made a gas called carbon dioxide. The gas rose up, filled and stretched the balloon! Cool huh?!
