    The campus for Inspire is out at12717355_438705699587256_7108319927790704439_n Richmond NMIT we had to leave home at 8am to get there in plenty of time (allowing Mummy time to collect a coffee on route!)



    This is my new Tuesday classroom. Including Linda the teacher there are just ten of us. Three girls six boys. We started the day by introducing ourselves to each other. We had to say one thing and then roll a ball of wool to the next person, whilst holding to our piece of wool. By the end of the introductions we had a very cool looking spiders web!



    Linda talked about how our Tuesday would run each week and we drew a mind map explaining how we could explore all the different branches of any topic.





    Our topic for this term is Exploration. Next week we get to go on our first field trip. Where we will be exploring un known territory in the same fashion as explorers of 200 years ago!






    We also worked in pairs to create a clay collaboration. We were only permitted  to use one had each! It was very confusing because I used my left hand but we were happy with the results.

    Another challenge we were given was to make bubbles. Making different size bubble blowers out off string, straws and wire  to see which created the best bubbles. Whilst we were doing this the press came in and asked some questions. I had fun trying to blow a bubble that the reporter could get a good picture of…. I might be in the local paper!



    So to summarise ….a day that would need every single wow word I know to explain how amazing it was. It was so cool to be in such a small class group and to be able to combine my two favourite topics of maths and science! Can wait till next week!

    A huge thank you to Mummy for finding out about these amazing classes and to Uncle Jan for making it happen!
