Have you ever been to Scienceworks? It's an amazing place to visit! On Monday and Tuesday the Year 3/4 students visited Scienceworks to learn more about their current Inquiry unit of work. They visited the Planetarium for an immersive experience learning about day and night and how the different seasons occur. They also attended a session to learn more about our Sun, Earth and Moon.
Werribee Zoo Excursion
Grade 1&2 children had a great day at the Werribee Zoo learning about habitats. We learnt about endangered animals and how the zoo is helping to fight extinction and now we have lots of ideas about how we can take action. We participated in a habitat heroes' program and were able to walk around the zoo and see many amazing animals as well as ride around in the safari bus.
Student Led iPad Information Session
There was an excellent turn out of current Year 2 parents who attended our Student Led iPad Information session. It was great to see the interaction between students and parents, as students led the discussions and demonstrated the way the iPad is used in class and the expectations for safe and appropriate use. There was time for parents to ask questions and also teachers on hand to discuss or clarify any further queries.
