What can we learn about science from toys ?


Posted by jomac | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on November 18, 2013

We have been doing a really great inquiry – all about toys and how they work. We have learned new words like gravity and friction and how lots of toys need “push and pull ” to make them move and work. We have made toys out of cardboard boxes and have made puppets, windmills, whirligigs, colour wheels and lots of others. Toys can work/move with wind, batteries and lots of other different things. We are collecting old broken toys and trying to work out what made them work. This unit has been great and we have learned a lot. Oscar , Hamish, Ali and Hannah. Junior M

Our Vegie Garden


Posted by jomac | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on August 20, 2013

We have now started planting our Vegie Garden. Quite a few of us put in seedlings donated to us by Masters. We also have new gardening gloves and lots of mulch and tools. It is really exciting and we are looking forward to weeding and seeing how they grow and develop. We will give them lots of T L C. We planted silver beet, some herbs, strawberries (yum) , cauliflower and some carrots.   Oscar, Jennifer, Akuac, Emma, Hamish and Sienna.

We had a great day at the Gallery and we also went to Acmi. We went with a lady called Ingrid, who told us all about some of the paintings in the gallery and the story behind them. We also had an Art lesson in the Gallery Art Room and made collages about our family and our story. We saw the different ways that stories can be told in Acmi and had a great time. The only drawback was that our bus broke downcoming home but we got home safe and sound. We were late but our Mums and Dads waited for us. We had a great excursion.

JUNIOR M and JUNIOR KF Gardening club. Watch this space!


Posted by jomac | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 28, 2013

Over the next couple of weeks the juniors are taking ownership of the 3 garden beds in the back playground. We plan to plant all kinds of vegies and interesting things according to the seasons. Any suggestions and advice would be much appreciated and most helpful to us. Donations of cuttings and seedlings would be gratefully accepted. Please let us know what you think. We have to weed and fertilise the garden beds and get them ready for for planting. The Juniors who are interested in helping with the garden will work during part of lunch, once a week. Do you think this is a good idea?

Juniors’ Fitness and Other News


Posted by jomac | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 7, 2013

We have been going through a fitness programme with Junior KF every Friday and have been getting very fit . We run around the running track , do races with hurdles and lots of games to practice ball handling skills. We are sure this is going to help us and it also is connected to our inquiry this term . Our inquiry question is ” How does the food we eat affect our health and wellbeing?”

We are having a food Carousel and are going to sample lots of various dishes that our Mums are making. We are looking forward to experiencing different kinds of food. It really is quite exciting. We will keep you posted as to how the food tasted.

This Sunday is Mother’s day and we have made bookmarks and little plaques out of icy pole sticks andjigsaw pieces that say “I love you to pieces” They look really great. Did you make anything special for your Mum or are you just going to spoil her on Sunday?
