This morning grade 4/5 ‘s went to woodwork in the MPR. We made little wooden boats and we all had lots of fun. We learnt to use a saw, how to sand and use less glue. Early in the lesson we saw two baby birds being fed by their mother out of the window.
What was everyones favourite part of the morning?
This morning our class delivered 9 different events to 1/2M and 1/2MC in a “Mini Olympics”. We spent a week planning and organising the rotations, along with writing procedures and certificates. The class taught events from the olympics along with events they’d like to have seen in Rio. The events were Relay, wheelbarrow race, distance throw, frisbee, sprints, hurdles, soccer, high jump, egg and spoon race.
What was the best part of the morning for you?
Today we dressed up in our favourite sporting colours (netball, soccer, basketball, football, etc.). There was a gold coin donation for being out of uniform. All money raised went to the Cancer Foundation. The J.S.C also ran some football activities on the oval at second lunch, the longest kick and a handball competition.

This afternoon the grade 5 students travelled to Weeroona College to participate in some Science based activities. They experimented with magnets, microscopes, indicators and chromatography. They also did some scientific drawings. Overall it was a fantastic afternoon visiting our local high school.
