D3 Whanau Group made delicious lemonade. We have been learning about the three states of matter, liquids, solids and gasses. We can change states of matter by heating, mixing and cooling. We learnt that sugar is a solid but it can dissolve into hot water. Lemons are a solid but when you squeeze them, lemon juice comes out, which is a liquid. We had to heat the sugar syrup, mix in the lemon juice and then cool the lemonade before we could drink it. It was so much fun!
Our whanau groups enable siblings to work and share in learning experiences alongside other students of various backgrounds, ages and levels.These groups are about getting to know each other, helping and supporting each other and having lots of fun. We meet 3 or 4 times a term and share common experiences that celebrate and promote strengths and interests of group members. Have a look at some of the exciting things we do during our whanau times.
