Over the past couple of weeks the Grade 5’s have created this wonderful Solar System model, with accompanying information posters. They have all worked extremely hard and this is evident in the quality of work produced. Well done!
The Grade 4’s having been learning about contact and non-contact forces this term. Today they made catapults from icy-pole sticks, demonstrating potential and kinetic energy. Heres one of the designs.
The Grade 3’s have been looking at how heat passes through different materials. The kids designed insulating covers to stop an ice cube melting. Here are some of the designs some were better than others.
The children were inspired to classify different animals into their groups, after their amazing experience at the Deadly Australian Presentation. Here is an example of a reptile and mammal skeleton. Reptile: Rattle snake Mammal: Marmoset
The Grade 1’s were having fun investigating and classifying whether materials were translucent, opaque or transparent.
Did you know an electric current can flow through saltwater. Last week the Grade sixers tested how different saltwater concentration affects the flow of electricity. The greater the concentration of salt, the greater the current.
The Grade 3’s harvested the garlic and herbs (parsley, rosemary and mint) to sell at this weekends Wangaratta Farmers Market. Our room smells amazing!! Thanks Mr Fram for your garlic bulbs in June, they’ve grown beautifully.
Yesterday the Eco Project Trailer came to St Pats. The Grade 5’s and 6’s attended sessions which looked at energy production (comparing coal generated power to solar power), energy efficiency in the home and how to reduce your carbon footprint.
