Last term 5/6J wrote their own poems on space. Check them out below!
Most of 5/6J went to Milson Island in October for Camp. Wow we had a great time. Check out Bosco’s Diary and then see our photos and videos!
Early in December Stage 3 got to go to the Sydney V8 supercars races.
Here are some photos and videos of what we did and what we saw. A great day!
We love morning routine and we have filled our brains with so many new facts!
Here are some photos of the best PWBs (Personal White Boards) and Jotters during Morning Routine in Term 4.
For our design and make science task, students in 5/6J had to make an orrery, a model with moving parts.
The challenge was to get the earth to revolve and rotate around the sun while the moon rotated around the earth. Challenging? You bet!
We spent quite a number of weeks getting these cactus sculptures finished. Once the clay was finally delivered (online order fail!) we had to make our pots and then each cacti or succulent plant.
The final stage included painting all the elements and adding spikes (thank you dry spaghetti). We then arranged the plants in the pot and added pom poms and pebbles.
Great work 5/6J!
Last term we had to complete a project based on Deserts!
Here were the activity choices -
There were some amazing items completed, check them out below! I think everyone especially enjoyed the edible deserts task
Here is a Homework-Desert PowerPoint created by Brooke.
Earlier this year 5/6J had to create a magazine article on a crazy invention. They had to write an informative text on either a blimp, penny farthing, dynsasphere or segway. Their page had to include a timeline and a table.
You can click this link to read the criteria for the Inventions Task. Once finished their texts became a class book that was shared with another Stage 3 class for voting! The top 3 pages were awarded based on the assessment given by 4/5S.
Here are the photographs of our awesome pages. A fantastic display of our writing talents!
For the second year in a row Year 5 went to Kingswood High School to make movies using Adobe Premier Pro. This year we had Mr Creighton, Mr Lang and Year 7 students helping us in our 2 day workshop.
Here are some shots from the two days. Check below for some videos of us in editing mode, and the actual movies we made!
