SPACE PODCAST #1

Luca V., William and Rory have been working on this podcast to let you know about interesting events in Space Exploration, and they’re sure you also have a good sense of humour.  [PS.  Listen for that ‘evil laugh’.]

Minecraft Worlds Showing Environmental Threats to Planet Earth

Sajer and Jase created a Minecraft “three worlds in one” World to show us the environmental threats to Planet Earth.  They compared Earth in the past, the present and the future.  They did a fabulous job creating their world after they had done much research and deep thinking!  😎

Boys, you worked collaboratively the whole way to present a thoughtful piece of work.  Well done!  (Room 6 loved your work!)  You can watch it here.

Weir Excursion

Room 6 students have made a great photostory of their Weir Excursion to sample macro-invertebrates.  Thank you to parents and Tracey Muir from Cape to Cape Catchments for their help and for making it a great experience.  We loved meeting real scientists to see how scientists work and how important their work is in the real world.

This is the first photostory Room 6 students have made and they worked amazingly well to create this as a collaborative effort!  Thank you to Izzy for leading the team and doing a lot of the writing and to: Sajer, Lazane, Seb and all the other wonderful IT helpers.  (Let me know if I’ve left your name off this list and I’ll add it.)  🙂

Friday – Work for the Day

Today your work will be the same as I already had written up on the whiteboard for the day.  Most of the work and finishing off work is where it usually is, on the handing-in table under the whiteboard.  The Maths sheets and Earth booklets are on the blue cupboard next to it. 

For Spelling Contracts, do the next activity on your contract.  Please take home your orange booklets with spelling words and we will get extra words for our next list instead.  You need to learn your words for next Friday’s spelling test on List 4.  Work hard! 

When doing the Inquiry activity, you will need to watch the videos on the post below this that we didn’t get to see yesterday, showing the different sizes of the planets

You will also find the information you need to complete the last page of your Earth booklets on KIDCYBER – PLANET EARTH.  (Please try to finish all the work in your Earth booklets.)

Next week we need to work in our inquiry groups to find out all about Earth as our very own special planet, so you need to have ALL your other pieces of work FINISHED!
