Farewell Mrs Coker

On the last day of Term 3 6JH, 6BM, 6AK and 5/6C  farewelled Mrs Coker as she takes a break from teaching to become a mum. We cant wait for next term when she visits with her new little bundle of joy.

We welcome Mr B into our team as 5/6C’s new teacher and the Year 6 Team leader.

‘Egg’cellent Egg-Drop

As part of our Term 3 Science Unit, the Year 4 students explored the properties of natural and processed materials. Students were asked to design and construct a special package that could house a raw egg and keep it from breaking when dropped from a high distance. Needless to say ‘eggcellent’ fun was had by all!

Forces in Action

Our sensational Year 4 scientists participated in an exciting ‘Mad About Science’ Workshop, exploring Newton’s Three Laws of Motion through a range of fun and hands-on experiments!

Students worked in pairs and small groups to explore the elements of gravity, lift, friction and force. Curiosity and chaos ruled the day as students had fun balancing and spinning objects – spinning propellers were a favourite!

Year 2 Science Investigation: Car Ramps

Students in Year 2 have been focusing on Physical Science. Their task was to investigate forces and the consideration of how pushes and pulls make things move. We used the following question as a focus point:

How far can we get our car to travel without pushing or pulling it?

Students worked in collaborative groups and predicted, observed and explained their findings after designing, building, testing and evaluating their car ramps.
