Drums, shields and flowers in rang a hAon

Solutions in rang a hAon

This week, we’ve been learning all about solutes and solutions. We predicted that salt and sugar would not dissolve in water and that oil would, but we were wrong!! The oil would not dissolve because it actually can’t! We learned that it’s a special kind of molecule that won’t mix with water. We were amazed that […]

Daffodils and helicopters in rang a hAon

This week we’ve been looking really closely at daffodils and how their petals and stems make many different lines and shades and colours. We’ve tried to show these different tones in our very own daffodil drawings, We used our pencils to make different shadings on our daffodils and highlighted the shadows with darker colours. We’re […]

Each race had over 150 (girls) and 200 (boys) participants and NETNS finished really well in both races, narrowly missing out on the medals. We’re really proud of everyone who ran […]
