Asian Day Year 5

On Friday, the 29th of July, the years fives had an Asian celebration day. Each year 5 teacher had their own activity in which all the students tried their best and had a wonderful and amazing time.

One of the activities was Asians games. These activities included badminton, traditional clothing, checkers, puppets and jacks. Each activity had a fun and exciting vibe all the students had a magnificent time!

The second activity was Asian cooking. The dish we made was fried rice. Parent helpers and teachers helped the students prepare the dish. The ingredients included mushrooms, beans, carrots, capsicum, corn, soy source and of course rice. Each student had their own opinion on whether or not they liked the dish but every student gave it a try.

The last activity was origami. The objective was to make an origami crane. We used square pieces of paper to make the crane. Some of us might have found this activity to be harder than others but it was still an enjoyable activity.

Overall the year 5s had a superb time and we would like to thank all the parent helpers and of course Mrs Kirk, Ms White, Mr B and Miss Chilton

The Great Year Five Bake-Off

The Great Bake-Off 2015 was a huge success. The year five students have been busy all this term exploring recipes, sourcing the best prices for ingredients, creating a budget and preparing advertising posters. Over the weekend they met up with their group to shop and prepare their product for the Bake-Off.

On Monday, the 16th of November, the students set up their stalls and the rest of the school came to visit to purchase their delicious treats! Yum, yum!

Year 5 Camp to Phillip Island Adventure Resort

Phillip Island Adventure Resort

6th – 9th October

On Tuesday the 6th of October, the Year 5 students went to Phillip Island Adventure Resort.  Everyone was very excited to arrive.  After saying goodbye to our families we headed off for a long trip but it was all worth it when we saw the sparkling ocean and cabins waiting for us.

We had some delicious food including fish and chips, cheeseburgers, chicken wraps and much more.  We also got to enjoy some magnificent activities that some of us had never tried before.  I know the 18 metre high giant swing scared some people but everyone loved the extremely fast flying-fox.  Other students were very proud of their canoeing skills.  Other activities were circotron, archery, ponding and low ropes.

On Tuesday night we settled down and watched a movie.  On Wednesday night we went for a night walk. On Thursday afternoon we all walked to the beach after buying an ice-cream. We played in the sand and played different sports and had a blast.  Then it was time for our awesome disco on Thursday night – we were wearing our fabulous ‘glow in the dark’ t-shirts that we created earlier in the
