COVID-19 Update – 16 March

As a school, we receive regular updates and advice from the Education Department about COVID-19 and implement these as required.

The Education Department continues to monitor the progress and implications for schools due to COVID-19.  They will respond to the advice and direction given by the Victorian Chief Health Officer and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and then inform all schools as to these expectations.

Schools will be informed directly if there is any prospect that they need to be closed, either as a stand-alone school closure or as part of a local or area-based closure. You will be informed if that is the case for us.

Year 3 Science!

This term our Year 3 students have been exploring the topic of Science! During the term, students have been involved in conducting various science experiments and expanding their scientific knowledge, method and vocabulary. With each experiment students had to include the Scientific Method – Title, Aim and POE (Predict, Observe and Explain).

Before the experiment, students identified the aim and wrote a prediction of what might happen during the experiment? As a class we would discuss why students created their aim and why they think it will happen?

During the experiment, students wrote an observation. They were encouraged to both draw and write about what happened during the experiment using scientific vocabulary.

Finally, once students had conducted the experiment, they went on to write an explanation. As a class we brainstormed ideas on the scientific reasoning and what we learnt throughout the experiment.

Students have been engaged and displayed curiosity throughout all the experiments!

Mad About Science in Year 2

In Week 7, the Year 2 students became super scientists and attended the Mad About Science Incursion. They created chemistry chaos by testing and observing biodegradable materials, made carbon dioxide and used an indicator to determine how acidic or basic everyday substances were. They were all very excited to take part in the session and below are some photos from the day.
