We have organised a special recycling collection day with SCR Group’s Recycle With Mondo For A Better World – School Fundraising Through Recycling Program. Our school will be paid 25c per kilo for the goods for reuse and recycling.
This program helps raise money for our school, reduces waste to landfill, creates jobs and supports communities in developing countries at the same time.
All we ask is for families to have a spring clean and clean out your wardrobes and cupboards over the next few weeks/days and bag any unwanted clothes, toys and linen that are no longer needed.
What to bring to school:
- linen (sheets, doona covers, towels, blankets)
- accessories (hats, scarves, gloves, belts, handbags)
Our school collection day is on Friday 17th June.
Look out for all of the posters around the school.Read More »
Prep W spent their maths session collecting data about their favourite colours.
Each student asked every classmate to choose a favourite colour out of the 4 they had selected.
We will then use this data to create a pictograph!
Great work everyone!Read More »
Today in maths we ordered numbers from smallest to largest.
Firstly, we cut out all of the numbers that we needed.
Then we put all of the numbers in order from smallest to largest. To work out what number went first, we looked at the first digit. If the first digits were the same, then we looked at the second digit. If the second digits were the same, then we looked at the third.Read More »
Grade 3/4 students learned all about how trees absorb water through their roots. This water then travels through the tree and eventually passes through small holes in the leaves called stomata. The water then evaporates from the leaves.
To demonstrate this we carried out a simple experiment using sticks of celery (as our trees) and water with food colouring. As you can see from the photographs, transpiration made the leaves of the celery go blue!
We carried out this activity following a range of questions developed by the students about our current topic “Green Planet”. The students wanted to know:
Why do leaves have lines on them?
What do leaves do for trees?
The complete list of questions that we want to answer is displayed in our classroom.Read More »
