Today we had a visit from Metro Trains, as Marcus was the winner for a Metro Safety Poster Competition. Out of the 279 entries, from 50 different schools, Marcus’ poster was chosen to promote rail safety week. The presentation taught us a lot about being safe around trains. See what our students learnt.

Don’t forget to tune in to Channel 10 5pm news tonight to watch the footage of the presentation. 

STEM- First Lesson

Today 5/6S had their first STEM lesson, lead by Lisa Heath. Today students were required to think like scientists. They were required to build a hoop plane, and change one variable to improve the distance the plane could fly.

Students had a lot of fun, and learnt to make predictions, discuss their observations. reflect on their predictions and draw conclusions based on evidence from trials.

This morning was Open Morning at school and the 5/6 students took this opportunity to showcase their learning from Term 1 Inquiry. The morning went very successfully, with students being able to present their learning to different year levels, and parents.

Despite some internet troubles, students were organised with posters, quizzes, prizes, and cue cards ready to share their learning. Overall the Open Morning was very successful!

Term 2 Maths Project

This Term Grade 5/6 students will be participating in the Maths.Camera.Action competition. This year the theme is Maths in the Future. Today students were asked to think of the mathematics they think will be relevant in the future, or futuristic concepts they were interested in.

Next lesson, students will explore, in teams, the mathematics and develop a video to explain the mathematics.
