Science so far......

 

The PP/Year 1 looked at the “Dinosaurs or More”. We looked at the features of a dinosaur, where they lived, what they ate and their protection. The students loved designing and making their armour as if they were a dinosaur.

 

The Year 2/3 looked at “Watch it Grow”. The students looked at various animals to see how they grew and researched many animals and plants life cycles. We looked at animals that hatch from eggs and that are born alive.  We had some mealworms to observe which they loved seeing.  We observed a bean plant germinate and grow. The Year 2’s made a poster of the life cycle of an animal an the Year 3’s a plant.

 

The Year 3/4 looked at “Among the Gum Tree” where the
students looked at the life cycle of a bee and a gum tree. They also looked at how gum trees and bees and other animals rely on each other to survive. The students enjoyed observing the animals on a weekly basis on a gum tree in the school. They also enjoyed making a poster of the Life Cycle of a gum tree.

 

The Year 5/6 looked at “Rising Salt “where students looked at how changes in the environment affects different living things. They observed the effects of salinity on plants and over watering of plants. They designed an irrigation or a trough for a farm. The students also wrote a letter being an expert offering advice to a concerned farmer.

Science Week

 

Science Week was another success with the students dressing up as scientists, lunch time fun activities supervised by the Year 5/6 students and our annual paper plane competition.

 

We had three Year 5 students attend the Belmont City College EPIC Science program for enrichment.

Young Engineers Club

 

During the term twelve students have attended the Young Engineers Club after school on a Thursday. This has been very successful and the students have learnt and made many new things to do with engineering.

 

Term 3 has certainly been a big science term!!
