It’s all happening in the science room this term! Our science topic for term 3 is Earth and Space Science. Ranging from learning about the seasons in Prep to learning about volcanoes, tsunamis and earthquakes in grade 6. Here are some students working on their models of the planets. They are finding out how far away each of the 8 planets are from the sun (150 million km for Earth).
You may have heard that we have a new member in the Science Room. Meet Chelly, our short neck turtle. Chelly is extremely cute and cheeky. He enjoys a feed of prawns and fish each morning. Here he is posing for the camera!
Lots of fun things have been happening in the science room this term whilst learning about Chemical Science.
Prep B had fun making rain clouds and learning about how and when it rains.
Grade 3/4 students have been busy learning all about crystals. They’ve had a go at trying to make their own using borax, epsom salts or sugar.
And we have moved one step closer to acquiring our turtle. These fish are cycling the water with bacteria to prepare the tank. Our turtle is still at the shop at the aquarium in Narre Warren if you would like to meet him/her (too early to tell).
Congratulations to the BEACY BATS who performed in their very first Aerobics competition on Saturday the 28thof April.
The team was extremely excited and performed amazingly. All of their hard work paid off when they came 1stplace, which was a tremendous effort for their first competition.
We can’t wait to work hard and continue our rehearsal to compete in the State Championship in June.
Welcome to the start of a great year. Students from Prep to Grade 6 will participate in specialist areas of Science, Performing Arts, PE, Indonesian and Visual Arts for both semesters. We have had a great start to the year with students attending all specialist classes. There is lots of learning and fun to be had.
FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT CONCERT SEATING ARRANGEMENTS
*Bring a rug, mat, cushion and/or a chair from home so you will be comfy!
Junior Concert Prep to Gr 2: Monday 18th December: 2pm: Shed Area
Senior Concert Gr 3 to 6: Monday 18th December: 6:30pm: Shed Area
On Monday 18th December, we will be setting up the viewing areas for our fantastic Junior and Senior Concerts a little differently to last year. We aim to make it a little easier for you to see, hear and enjoy your talented children’s performances a little better.
There will be two designated areas in the centre of the shed as follows.
- The area towards the centre front and middle will only be for families who bring a rug or a cushion to sit on. Please bring your own from home with you.
- The area towards the back will have a couple of rows of chairs for special needs and there will be some space available for your own chairs from home
(It’s probably a good idea to have a chair and a rug in the back of the car just in case either area fills up.)
As the Junior Concert is at 2pm, we also ask that you please do not come on to the school grounds until after play has finished and all students are out of the yard.
(You can enter the yard from 1:30pm – not before please)
Hope you can make it,
Irene Carroll and Emma Jennion (Performing Arts Teachers)
