Thank you to those parents who attended the Maths Information Nights for Year 3/4 and Year 5/6. Below are the slides from each of the sessions.
Congratulations to the following Class Captains for Term Two.
The weather continues to be hot and sunny which means lots of water, sunscreen and hats for our campers. Our day was filled with high ropes, flying fox rides, giant swings and ball games. Lots of challenges to be met and conquered. After lunch it was off to the beach again where throwing buckets of water at each other seemed to be the main game. At dinner time our delicious lasagna was followed by birthday cake as we celebrated 3 birthdays. Tonight it is movie night then a well earned rest.
After a bit of a delayed start we finally got underway and had a smooth run down to camp. On arrival we had lunch, put our bags in our rooms, got changed into our beach gear, slipped, slopped, slapped and headed for the beach. The weather was beautiful, the water was cool and everyone had a ball. Returning to our cabins we showered and sat down to a delicious dinner of chicken schnitzel and salad followed by merainge topped ice cream. With dinner out of the way it was down to the oval for a game of cricket or just relaxing. Currently everyone is playing 1 minute to win it (I will post photos of this mad game tomorrow) Its been a busy day.
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.
The day started off gloomy and wet as we boarded the bus for our visit to Healesville Sanctuary. Our aim was to gain some inspiration for the creative writing which we are preparing for this years writer’s Festival. As we drew closer to Healesville the skies brightened and the rain stopped. Then we were in for a treat as we watched raptors soar, corellas talk and brolgas dance. Hopefully some of what we saw will shine through in our writing. We even saw some very strange blue winged birds.
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.
