6th Class Graduation - Monday, 24th June, 2 - 3pm. All families of 6th Class pupils are welcome.
This week we have been learning about Weight and Forces. We had four stations with different activities at each, including a station using our new school iPads.
We estimated and weighed a range of classroom objects, using a variety of measurement instruments, such as a traditional weighing scales, a digital scales and a spring balance.
It was great to take part in active learning activities and explore Weight and Forces!
As part of our Green Schools campaign, 5th and 6th Class went to Herzog Park and collected litter. We found lots of plastic, glass bottles and food wrapers. It is great to give back to the community and make Herzog Park pleasant for everyone.
We learned about magnestism in science class and we made our own compasses. We magnetised a needle and placed it on a cork disc floating in water. We were amazed that the needle turned towards the north. We think that science is exciting and fascinating!
We made lovely clay coil pots during art class. We loved working with the clay and seeing our pots take shape. We think they turned out very well!
We learned all about rivers in Geography and Science class and decided to go out for a walk by the River Dodder with 5th and 6th class to explore for ourselves. We had a lovely time. We saw beautiful willow trees, ducks and we were even lucky enough to spot a fox enjoying the sunshine. It was great to focus on the sights and sounds of the wonderful natural world around us!
