Clean Up Australia Day


We had a great time cleaning up the Campus for Clean Up Australia Day.

Geography: States, Territories and Capital Cities

In Geography we have been learning about the States, Territories and Capital Cities. Students produced a rap, rhyme and jingle for the class.

Our SLT representatives


Our SLT representatives for Semester 1 Alex and Emily took their SLT pledge and received their SLT badges at Assembly this morning. We know you are going to do an excellent job.

Exploring Seeds

Yesterday in Science we looked closely at seeds. We did this by using Borlotti Beans.

We first looked at a dry bean and split it open to see what it looked like under a magnifying glass. Here is a photo below.


We then looked at a soaked bean that had  been sitting in water overnight. Look at the difference in size, once the bean has been soaked.


We then split the soaked bean open to see if there were any changes. If you  look closely you can see the first shoot starting to appear and the differences between the dry bean and the soaked been.

What’s The Buzz?


We have been writing our own instructions and then getting our peers to listen to them.

What’s The Buzz?


We have been focusing on ways to gain attention. We looked at friendly behaviours and demanding behaviours. We role played different attention gaining behaviours.

 We have been role playing the ways in which we can greet each other.

Fitness with our new pedometers and Active Globe


Last week all the students were given a new pedometer to be used in conjunction with a new website called Active Globe to help us track our steps and achieve our personal goals. Active Globe helps  the students to log their physical activity and achieve a personal goal they have set for themselves. The goal the students needed to decide on is how far on a map do they think their physical activity will take them. We also made a decision on a class goal. Our class goal is to run or walk to Melbourne from our school (as pictured below). We are fast approaching the State border, so we are doing well already as a class.

It certainly has motivated the students during fitness sessions and in particular our popstick run.
