Term 2 Science News

This term, the students in Years 3-6 are continuing their learning about Physical Sciences.

Year 5/6 – Electricity Unit

We have worked on making circuits using the Makey Makey kits. The Makey Makey kits allowed the students to demonstrate how to open and close circuits using various conductive objects connected to alligator clips. When the circuit is closed, the signals are then sent to the computer as commands like a button on a keyboard.

The students were able to use Playdoh and bananas to replace their keyboards to operate online bongos, a piano keyboard and various games.

Education Week  May 20th-26th

During Education Week, our school had the opportunity to display our student’s work at Gladstone Park Shopping Centre. Science was represented by the work completed by year 5/6 students in term 1, showcasing our paperclip and pressure switches and some of our completed torches.
