The fun and exciting Footsteps dance program is here and everyone is so excited! Throughout term 3, we have grooved to a disco dance, had fun doing hip-hop and practiced our partner dancing. All of this is leading up to our amazing end of term disco! Footsteps is a great opportunity for everyone to express their inner dance skills and we can’t wait to do it again!
This term, the children who aren’t involved in an Interschool Sport team have walked to Macleod Tennis Club to participate in tennis coaching.
We have been learning a lot tennis skills and playing championship rallies. The winner of the rally moves one way and the loser moves the other way to challenge the next person. We have learnt the forehand, backhand, volley and serve strokes. We were able to use two hands when we learnt the backhand.
All the kids have had a blast playing tennis at the Macleod tennis courts. Thank you to the coaches, Andrew and Jake, and Mr Taylor and Mrs Rowell for walking us to the tennis club. Everyone had a wonderful time!
Students and teachers in the 5/6 Area were lucky enough to attend PGL Camp Rumbug in Foster during term two. Two students wrote about the amazing experience.
Last Wednesday the 5/6 area came to school at 8.45am to leave for Camp Rumbug. When we arrived there was non-stop fun. There were heaps of activities and I loved every one of them. My personal favourite would have to be the Flying Fox. There were 2 flying foxes and luckily we got the better one, which went straight over the lake. It was so much fun! I also loved participating in the Mud Run activity. It was about 1.7 km and it was full of MUD. This camp was definitely my all-time favourite and I would go back in a heartbeat.
Once I arrived at camp I was so excited. I couldn’t wait for the days ahead. My favourite activity would have to be Aeroball. If you don’t know what Aeroball is, it is four trampolines with goals behind them. The aim of the game is to get the ball into the other side’s goal. Luca and Charlie won the Aeroball Championship in our group. I also loved when our group did the Flying Fox, it was so exciting! I was so annoyed when we had to leave. It was a great camp for my last year of primary school.
A special thanks to students in 45S who entered a range of data collected by students across the school related to student voice. The JSC will explore the significance of the data and return with some reflections!
We are very excited to share what is happening in the 5/6 Area this term. Our news is attached.
2016 Term 1 5/6 Area news
Linda, a scientist from CSL came to the 4/5/6 area. She taught us how to extract DNA from strawberries, told us about the flu and how she makes the vaccine using eggs. It was so fun and interesting!
How she extracted DNA from strawberries: she squashed 2 strawberries then she put dish washing liquid and water in and mushed it up. She added mentholated spirits and the DNA separated from the juice.
Linda was a scientist who showed us how to extract DNA from a strawberry and told us what she does for a job.
She stopped a virus that we wouldn't be able to stop unless we had a bit of it in us.
She showed us how she looked with all the scientist protective gear on. We asked questions about her job.
