Science Fun!!!

The inquiry topic for students in Years 5 and 6 this term is Chemical Science. Students will be participating in a range of different science experiments, determining the properties of liquids, solids and gases.

One of the experiments is, turning a liquid (milk) into a solid (ICE CREAM!!). Students had a great time learning how to  drop the temperate of the milk so much, it turns into yummy ice cream.

5/6’s teaching the Foundation students

Students in 5/6 have been learning how to write procedural texts. Today, the 5/6s used their “how to-s” to teach the students in Foundation different skills, games and creations (such as paper places and stick puppets). Fun was had by all!

5/6s in the Art Room!

Year 5/6L and 4/5H started the semester by looking at work by Andy Warhol. The children produced some very colourful soup cans that were inspired by his artwork. We also had some very creative soup names including Confetti Soup, Sloth Soup and Coke Soup…….yum!!!!

These grades have also been working on a radial symmetry relief sculpture. The children were introduced to three basic paper folds and then they let their creatively take over. Aren’t the results amazing?

IMAX and Scienceworks Excursion

IMAX

IMAX, SCIENCEWORKS AND PLANETARIUM

Last Friday (3rd of June, 2016), the students in Years 3-6 went on an excursion. First we had to get on the bus at 8.20am just so that we can beat the early morning traffic. We got to IMAX at about 9.15am to watch a documentary about space in 3D! It was pretty sick seeing all the galaxies up close. Then we hopped back on the bus to go to Scienceworks and the Planetarium. In the Planetarium we watched a cartoon about the seasons and Earth’s tilted axis. Then we looked at star constellations. After that we looked around Scienceworks. There were sports, the future (think ahead) and there was even an Alice in Wonderland themed area! After all the wandering and looking all we all went on the bus and to go back to school.

IMAX, Scienceworks and planetarium!

Last Friday, the 3, 4, 5 and 6’s went to IMAX and Scienceworks. First we went to IMAX. It was the best. We watched a 40 minute documentary about space. We loved it more because it was in 3D. After IMAX we went to Scienceworks. We all went into groups. All of the groups played games and watched a movie in the planetarium. Everyone loved it because we looked up in the sky and watched the movie. Then we went on the bus and came back to school.

Clever Kids is Back!

Clever Kids is Back!

Students participated in their first session of Clever Kids this term. Students were involved in many different activities including, coding, gardening, drama, knitting, yoga, zumba, cooking, chess, science, clay making and guitars.

I love my Clever Kids activity because when you go to the garden there’s a lot of plants and lots of tools to use. It’s messy but really fun to do. It helps to know good plants for the garden and for winter.

By Daniel K

Clever Kids was really exciting. We did great things in Snazzy Science. The first was the egg drop, then we did Mentos with soft drinks and bottle rockets. My favourite was the bottle rockets because ours was the highest. Next term I want to do drama.

By Kon

I really enjoyed my Clever Kids lessons in ‘Fun with Clay’. We made three different things each. I made a pizza on a plate, a Christmas tree and an ‘s’ which stands for Summer. Fun with Clay was my number one choice and I got it. Yay! We also learnt about all of the materials.

By Summer

I love playing chess because we verse each other and it’s very hard, fun and confusing to play chess.

By Dean

Wow. I love drama in Clever Kids. In drama you get the opportunity to do lots of acting in different scenarios. It is really fun. It will be so hard to choose something else next term.

Here are some pictures of the different groups.
