Year 3 Sport – Semester 1

Throughout the first semester, Year 3 students have participated in a wide range of physical activities during Year level sport.  In Term 1, students participated in athletics activities including discuss, shot put, long jump and relay. In Term 2 we started to work with some of the major sports including netball, football, basketball and soccer. Year 6 House Captains coached students and provided support to run the sports in Term 2 and did a fantastic job! Thank you so much to those amazing helpers.

Year 6 Investigating the 3 States of Matter

Who would have thought that science experiments would be so much fun and yummy as well.

Do you know why the lemonade frothed up when the ice cream was added or why the bubbles didn’t pop on the wet table? If not ask a year 6 student.
