Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies!

Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies!

This past 2 terms the grade 5&6 students have worked so hard to make the production the way it was!
We had lunchtime rehearsals and in class rehearsals. There was a lot of time put into the show and we were so lucky to have been a part of it!
Thank you heaps to Mr McLean who designed lots of the props and sets and to Mr Meagher who directed the whole show and put heaps of time into it. Also Mrs Weston who made all the costumes, so thank you to everyone who put in their time for this to be possible!
We were so lucky to have had all the other helpers who made this possible. From a student’s perspective we were so privileged to have had all the amazing costumes and the sets and props in this show. We were very lucky to have everyone who helped. All the students worked hard every Tuesday and Wednesday even if they were only in the class dance! Every single 5&6 student participated in the show!
It was an amazing experience and one that the 5&6 students will never forget!

Grade 5/6 CAMP 2017

The grade 5/6 cohort had a sensational time at Ace Hi camp.
During the day you could spot students scaling the rock climbing wall, conquering the giant swing, experiencing the property on horse-back and rocketing down the flying fox.
By night, students enjoyed exploring the camp grounds, taking a night hike, partying in their onesies and a highly competitive trivia night.
It was certainly a camp to remember!

What's going on in 6B!

What’s going on in 6B!!!!!

There are many exciting things 6B has been getting up to this term and one of them is earthquakes. In science 6B and 6A’s topic is earthquakes. We have learnt about tectonic plates and how the earth can move and change while learning about the earth's structure as well , there is the earth's inner  core which is obviously the hottest part of the earth and it is made out of iron and nickel.  the outer core, is the layer surrounding the inner core. The outer core is a liquid also made from iron and nickel, like the inner core the outer core is also very hot with similar temperatures to the inner core. The mantle is the thickest part of the earth. It is made up of magma. the upper parts of the mantle is hard and rock like, yet when it gets closer to the outer core it gets softer and is starting to melt. Finally there's the crust which both you and me are standing on right now. It is a thin layer of rock ,grass and dirt.

The Brain:
In integrated our topic is the brain and body systems, we have learnt about the left and right side brain , the parts of the brain, and the systems of the body(respiratory, urinary, digestive etc.) Did you know that the small intestines are about as big as five chickens lying down Head to toe!

We have all had sooooooooooooo much fun in 6B so far,in fact, I wouldn't mind doing it all over again!

Integrated - Man-made and natural resources - Upcycling


On Friday the 5th of August 2016 in Integrated , grade 3B and 3A made newspaper huts. We used these materials:1-4 newspapers, sticky tape, scissors,3-5 people and a person from your group to go into the hut. To get the person in your group into the hut you could: build around the person, make an entrance, find a gap in the hut etc. We had to try and make it balance and stick together properly. When you are finished and you've put one person in the hut , you can try and put another and another or just rip the newspaper and put it in the bin.If you have time you can make another,and another etc. Check out all our ideas and strategies!

Students also enjoyed recycling old bottles and socks/washers to create a bubble making device. The students and teachers had loads of fun and it was easy to see that with very little equipment available we could still create hours of fun!
