May The Force Be With Year 3!

100_1154 100_1171 100_1205

During Science Week the Year 3s had a great day exploring forces during a ‘Hands On Science’ incursion. Each class participated in a range of activities to extend their knowledge of forces.

Students measured the force involved in pulling, lifting and dragging objects. They explored how various materials create different amounts of friction. They used static electricity to move boats.   There was also exploration of magnetic force. Finally students created their own straw rocket, trying for a design that would allow the rocket to stay in the air the longest.

It was great to see all the budding Year 3 scientists applying their knowledge and extending their thinking.

Excursion to Gould League

During Term 3 the Year One Inquiry topic is Mini Beast Mayhem. We have been investigating what mini beasts are, their features, habitat and the role they play on the environment.

On Tuesday the 4th of August we visited the Gould League Education Centre in Moorabbin. Students participated in sessions led by the Gould League staff, where we looked at mini beasts and how the environment benefits from them. We had a fantastic and fun day!! Below are some photos of us digging for mini beast, finding worms, pond dipping for mini beasts and dressing up as different mini beasts.

This term Year 5 & 6 students were busy working on their modern, abstract stocking and wire sculptures.

They particularly enjoyed experimenting with different painting techniques. The splatter technique was popular and best completed outside.

Hoop-Time 2015

On Friday August 14th, thirty-two Year Four students from Greenvale Primary School went to the Craigieburn Leisure Centre to compete in Junior Hoop-Time Basketball Competition.

Greenvale PS entered four teams in the event, including an All Star Boys, All Star Girls (top division) and two Rookies teams (beginners).

The Rookies teams played a number of friendly matches against schools from our local district and experienced a mix of wins, losses and a draw.

Both the All Star Boys and Girls teams played in a more competitive competition and were skilful enough to remain undefeated throughout the day.

Well done to all Greenvale PS students who played with great skill, sportsmanship and enjoyment, and congratulations to the All Star Boys and Girls teams who are the district champions.
