One of our trees in the school bushland was uprooted in yesterday’s storm. After closer investigation Mr Cogger and I found this ‘grub’ in the root of the tree. It is bigger than my thumb!!
Here is short movie of it taken with my camera.
On Thursday of Week 5 we went to SciTech with the other class of Year Threes and the Year Fours. – Georgia
We went to discover the amazing things that were in SciTech. – Olivia
We were lucky enough to go into the Planetarium and watch an amazing show called ‘To Space and Back.’ – Megan
We got to watch a Science Show. Some of the tricks looked like magic! Miss Corkhill’s hand was set on fire by the scientist! – Shanti
We got to play some awesome games. Some of the activities were getting our head chopped off by a guillotine and placing our head on a platter. – Taj
Another activity that we explored was called a bed of nails. – Lachlan
There was an exhibition where you could move a ball all around a maze and rollercoaster. You could pedal and push the ball around! – Ky
We learnt a lot and had a tonne of fun at the same time!
Students don’t forget your plate photo for next week!
We are having our own Science week here at St Emilie’s in week 8. The 2014 topic is ‘Science Feeding the World’. Both Health and Science will be doing extra activities with the students in week 8. Mr Davis will be doing an activity with year 5 about where our food is sourced from. Each year 5 student is to bring to school a photograph of their evening meal. So sometime between now and week 8 choose one of your favourite dinners, take a photograph of it and then print it out ready to bring to school. The students are not required to bring their photos until week 8.

Dear Students We had a wonderful visit from Mr Sayer and learned all about pressure. We observed as Mr Sayer showed us three investigations. First he crushed a 4 litre can, then a smaller plastic container, Secondly he showed us how pressure causes holes in a 1 litre bottle to flow at different rates and finally we investigated how water comes out of a small polystyrene cup as it falls to the ground. You now have a homework task to complete. Please get onto the task while the investigations are still fresh in your memories. The task is to be handed in by Thursday 21st August. Here is a copy. Mrs Cogger
The soccer team played their best game of the year! After going into the half time break 0-0, we had a couple of early chances however St Munchin’s hit the front with an early goal. Then with about 10 mins to go, we were unlucky to concede a penalty and we went down 2 – 0.
Aedan had an amazing first half as our goalkeeper while Aiden, Sherwyn and Dylan a;so worked hard all day. A really top effort by all St Emilie’s players!
