Bay Cities Symphonic band


video


With around 20 pieces the band played on despite the gusty breeze. The combination of band rotunda and playground made for a great day out for the families who went. So watch out in the CHB mail for your next opportunity to see them perform. I especially loved the three-four year old marching and dancing to song after song right up next to the band, obviously enjoying the music as much as I was.

Helium launch.




Lego space shuttle
Today as a follow up from launching our own Helium balloons we watched this video of a large helium balloon carrying a Lego space shuttle and a camera up into near space.
We also drew a picture of
CO2
Drawing 6 circles for Carbon, and 8 for Oxygen and comparing it to Helium with only two.




We will have to make some balloon molecules as well.




We also looked at how air when it gets hotter spreads out linking this to the hot air balloon festival in the Wairarapa this weekend.




At Ryan's request we went on to look at mud pools and lava, and this lead to us rubbing our hands together for friction to make heat.
