We have been learning about Soil Erosion. We investigated wind erosion, river erosion, sand erosion and water erosion.

The Campus had their Book Week Parade last Friday. Our class were inspired to dress as though we were involved in “The Gizmo” story, our class novel. If you are unfamiliar with the Gizmo story, the Gizmo is a ball like machine that wreaks havoc on those that have it their possession. When the Gizmo beeps one or more articles of clothing get swapped between two people. You can see from the video below that we all had fun with this theme.
It was our turn earlier this term to make soup for the Moore Street Centre. Everyone from our class got involved and we had great fun making the soup and knowing it was all going to a good place. We really appreciated our parent helpers Andrea, Bec and Mary for guiding us through the cooking process and interpreting Mr B’s recipe. We also thank Roger who volunteered to take the soup to the Moore Street Centre. More of our classes from the St. Joseph building will be making more soup in the coming weeks.
Please enjoy the video below of all the soup making fun.
Our class visited the Adelaide Zoo recently to take part in the Planetkeepers program. We spent time with a Zoo educator learning more about our focus animal the Orangutan. We learnt about why the Orangutans are critically endangered and what can be done to help protect them.
We were also very lucky to spend some time with the Orangutan Zoo Keeper, who provided us with lots of interesting information. We also got to go behind the scenes in an area not open to the public for a closer experience with one of the three Orangutans at the Zoo.
We had a fantastic time at the Zoo. As part of the Planetkeepers program we are currently undertaking research into Orangutans and endangered animals generally to look at ways we can raise awareness of why Orangutans and other animals are endangered. We will also be deciding on some ways in which we can raise money to go to organisations that help protect Orangutans. Be sure to have a look at our video below and keep coming back to our blog to learn more about Orangutans and what you can do to help protect them.
