On Tuesday 2nd July the Year Five and Six students participated in Keeping Safe Activities. The focus for this afternoon was on Relationships and we covered the topics; Rights and responsibilities of children and young people and Trusted Networks. The activities the students completed are all based on these focus areas.
Below is a link to the Rights of a child clip that the students viewed before completing the activities.
Overall, the teachers found that students were engaged and completed each activity, contributing some very insightful and interesting thoughts and opinions to each session. This was also a good precursor for next term’s learning about the concept of Social Justice.
This term, we have been learning all about Sustainability! In our HASS unit, we have looked at natural disasters, climate, endangered animals and investigated the things we can do to help make our planet a better place to live.
Our assembly was based on Endangered Animals. Each student chose a particular animal to research and create an art piece about. We had a great time learning about these beautiful creatures and what we can do to help them, and we hope we can play a small part in keeping them alive!
Here are some photos from the assembly. You can also click on THIS LINK to watch a video of our HISTORY by One Direction REMIX. Enjoy 🙂
Recently the Year 4, 5 & 6 students have been learning about Earth & Space Science. As part of these studies, we had a visit from Earth Science Western Australia (ESWA) on the 16th of May. The Year 5 students took part in some hands-on activities and learned about how farmers can use chemistry to test rocks to help them improve their soil.
The Year 6 students learned about the different types of volcanoes and completed an investigation about the viscosity of their lava. Thanks to WASP, an initiative supported by Woodside and ESWA, for an exciting incursion.
