Zoo Excursion!

Posted by Junior Teachers | Posted in Inquiry | Posted on October 18, 2014

Hi everyone,
On Wednesday the Juniors had an excursion to Melbourne Zoo to learn about animal features and animal habitats. We visited lots of animal enclosures and even got to feel a snake, lizard, frog and snake skin!
What did you enjoy most about the day? What animal was your favourite to see?
Here are some photos from the day.

I wonder if you can name the animals in the pictures, describe some of their features and tell us what habitat you think they live in.

Families Past and Present

Hi everyone,

This term we are beginning to learn about our families. We are exploring our own families and what our parents families looked like too. So far we have been sharing family photos, and photos of our parents when they were young.
Have you noticed anything different or similar between the photos and our families?
It has been fun so far to learn more about each other’s families and to look at photos. Here is what we have so far on our wall

Science Expo!

Posted by Junior Teachers | Posted in Inquiry | Posted on July 1, 2014

Hi everyone,

On the last week of term the Junior classes held an expo where they explored lots of different experiements about science. Some of the things we explored included weather, clouds, water, volcanoes, wind, thunder, tornadoes and lots of things about water. What did you enjoy most about the expo?

It was a day full of science! There are also some pictures from our art lesson where we used frozen ice cubes that were different colours!

It was a great way to show everyone what we had learned about science and changes that occur.

Junior B Mixing Matter

Posted by Junior Teachers | Posted in Inquiry | Posted on June 25, 2014

This week we had a special visitor who’s name is Mei, who taught us some experiments.

We learnt about mixing solids and liquids. Sometimes they can make a gas.

‘I had a bottle of bicarbonate soda and water and I had to mix it up to see if it dissolved. Hannah’

‘ I loved when we made sherbert using bicarb soda, citric acid and icing sugar. Declan’

‘I liked when we had to fill up a bottle with white vinegar. We put a balloon on a funnel and put bicarb soda in, and then tipped the soda into the bottle and the balloon blew up! Matthew”

I loved it when Mei made the tablet in the bottle explode. She put a headache tablet and mixed it with water and something else.’ Ben

Here are some pictures about what we did

Rain Gauges

Hi Juniors

Last week we make our own rain gauges to see how much it can rain at our school.

We had to write a procedure of ‘how to make a rain gauge’ and then we got to put them outside and hoped that it rained!

We collected rain from one night. How much water did it rain? Have a look at some of our pictures

Autumn Art

Posted by Junior Teachers | Posted in Inquiry | Posted on May 16, 2014

Hi everyone,
This week we have been exploring different seasons that occur. We have been exploring Autumn because that is the season we are in now. Today we made some creative Autumn trees using lots of different paper to show leaf litter, which is all the leaves that sit on the floor. We used Autumn colours such as brown, orange, red and yellow.
What did you enjoy most about making the trees? What are some things we can say about the artworks in the pictures?
Here are some photos of Junior B Autumn trees!

Hi everyone,

Here are some of your creations

What have you enjoyed learning about so far?
