We have looked at the artworks of Vincent Van Gogh and recreated his famous Stary Night.
We also completed a task with Mrs Campbell where we looked at the characteristics of different animal body parts. We sketched them and then combined them to create our own Crazy Critters.

How do you make food last longer?
That is the question that was posed in 4-5S.
Students designed an experiment where they saw what factors increased the growth of mould on bread. They included variables such as cold, heat, dark, light, water content and the addition of foreign chemicals.
Students made their own hypothesis then made daily observations of any changes.
In the end their observations were:
- After 2 weeks the bread in the fridge was still great.
- The bread in the dark grew less mould than in the light.
- The bread that was dampened grew mould faster and 2 different types of mould.
- The bread that had sugary water added grew mould the fastest and grew lots of different types of mould.
The class concluded, to make food last longer keep it dry and keep it cold.
Students had to script, film and edit a conversation between an Aboriginal and convict child that took place soon after the landing of the first fleet. They had to demonstrate the different perspectives of both groups and highlight their feelings about the dramatic changes in their lives.

4-5 S have been studying a topic called First Contact which involves looking at life in Australia pre 1770, the first fleet and British settlement. An assessment task they had to do is to create a Venn Diagram to compare Aboriginal and British perspectives of these significant events in our history.

Kindergarten have been learning about our bodies and how to make healthy choices about what we eat and how to exercise.
We made “Fruity Echidnas” using fresh fruit and also had a fresh strawberry smoothie. The children loved eating and drinking their creations.
We also learnt about our skeleton and how it works. Have a look at our clever cottonbud skeletons.
