The Year 5 and 6 students have been learning about the history of Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius, to finish off our unit we made a simple volcano using water, bicarb soda, dish washing liquid and vinegar. Mt Vesuvius erupted on August 24, 79 AD, it destroyed the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. It is still considered an active volcano, the most recent eruption occurred in 1944.
Being curious at school is essential. Here’s what happened when students in Year 5 were challenged to melt an ice cube using equipment on hand.
Boy were our students curious (and excited) to try all sorts of methods to melt their ice quickly and efficiently.
Let the curiosity challenges continue…
Congratulations to all Year 5 and Year 6 students (and teachers) for collecting so many donations for the ASRC Food bank – we have done an AMAZING job. Over $3000 worth of donations were collected. The volunteers at ASRC were overwhelmed with the generosity shown by the Greenvale community.
See the photo of just how much food we collected. OVER 100 shopping bags filled with groceries. What a fantastic effort!
Congratulations to the Year 5’s and 6’s on collecting over 100 shopping bags full of groceries for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre Food Bank. The ASRC currently supplies food to over 600 people a week.
A huge thank you to Mrs T and Mr R for organising the delivery of the groceries
Great effort everyone.
