    Rooms 2 & 5: Living and non-living investigations

    Last term, Room 2 and Room 5 have been investigating Living and Non-Living things as a Science focus area of study.

    The students have concentrated on sorting and classifying Living and Non-Living objects, and then identifying and comparing differences. They have also identified similarities and differences of living things, with particular attention to various insects and how they change over the course of their lifetime.

    Seacliff Beach Dune Planting  –  City of Holdfast Bay Annual Revegetation

    The school was invited by the City of Holdfast Bay to be involved in the volunteer and education program, therefore the Year 3/4s of Room 10 and Year 4/5s of Room 11 took up the opportunity. The students were very enthusiastic to contribute to this worthwhile environmental project, which is in their own ‘backyard’. This integrates well with our school and local community environmental focus this year.

    Room 1 – Back in Time!

    This semester Room 1 have been learning about the past and how daily life has changed due to the use of technology. Students have been comparing family life, toys, the way we communicate and transport.
    We have had a lot of fun investigating the differences! Through reading books set in the olden days, watching short videos and researching, we have been able to design our own olden day toys and use our art skills to draw a horse and cart.
