Today we had a footy parade in the hall. It was great fun wearing our colours and marching to our team song. Great job everybody!
Here is how you make one.
Hi, my name is Larissa and I am this weeks student photographer. Here is what I saw while walking around the yard today.
In our InquiRE unit we read the story ‘Letters to Pope Francis’ which is a collection of letters to the Pope from children all around the world. We the wrote our own letters to Pope Francis asking him questions we were wondering.
Hi, my name is Sebastian and I am in charge for this week’s greatest invention! And the greatest invention has to be… ART!!! I think that art is the greatest invention ever because without it life would be dull, and boring! And who wants that?!
Art lets you express your imagination and even how you may be feeling. If you are shy and don’t like to talk about your feelings, you can just paint or draw them on canvas! Art fills the world with colour and excitement!
Happy drawing St. Charles!
Here is my game called “The Fishy Game”. Using the arrow keys, move the fish and try to get the key. Can you make it through all of the levels?
Look at who arrived at St Charles Borromeo today?
Oliver and Oliver. The octopus twins from Colegio Newlands (Argentina).
They spent a bit of time in 5/6SC this afternoon. Tomorrow, they will be introduced to their new classrooms – 1/2KC and 1/2IC.
Here are some adventures they have been on before.
Hi, my name is Alyssa and this is my Scratch Program. I have called it Maze Runner. In this program, you have to make some wise choices in which way to turn. Or else you will be eaten by the dragon that is chasing you! I hope you like it.
Have a look at the display the Year 1s at Colegio Newlands have made for the project they are doing with our Year 1/2s. How many koalas can you see?
Thanks to Martin (ICT Teacher at Holy Family, Mount Waverley) who sent this photo through while visiting Argentina.
Have a look at the drawings the Year 1 students from Colegio Newlands have made of their favourite Australian animals.
This term, the Year 5/6s nominated a number of inventions which they thought were the greatest ever. Vote and let us know which invention you think is the best.
Hi, my name is Keira. The book that I have chosen for, “Book of the Week” is Welcome To Wonderland Home Sweet Motel
I chose this book because you go on an adventure with P.T and Gloria to save the Wonderland Motel. The book uses lots of descriptive words. I would highly suggest this to all ages and if you enjoy a bit of surprise then read this book. There is a sequel that came out in May 2017 in America which means that it may or may not be out in Australia yet. Judging the first book, I think the sequel will be really good too.
Hi, my name is Nicole and for this week I am in charge of choosing “Blog Post of the Week.” I have decided to award it to St. Mary’s Primary School in Hampshire (in the UK).
They have posted about their science unit on plants. Make sure you have a look on their blog.
You can’t leave a comment on their blog, but make sure you have a look.
Hi everyone, my name is Oscar and I am one of this week’s junior scientists.This is a science experiment I call How to make pepper jump?
This is a quick and easy experiment that is fun and will wow your friends. Remember to have parent supervision.
When you rub the balloon on your hair the friction caused by the hair and the balloon rubbing against each other causes the electrons from your hair to transfer to the balloon. This gives the balloon a negative charge. When you hold the balloon over the plate of pepper and salt, the pepper stuck to the balloon because the pepper has protons and a positive charge. Just like with magnets…opposites attract. The salt did not jump because salt is much heavier than pepper. Here is progressive photos below of me doing the experiment.
The “Magic Faraway Tree” is a great book. It’s about three kids Jo, Beth and Fannie who discover a magic Faraway Tree. On top of the magic, Faraway Tree are lands that can take people anywhere they wish to go. There also live three lovely and amazing people named Moonface, Silky the fairy and the Saucepan man. They go on many adventures with the kids.
Hi, My name is Sarina and I am responsible this week for nominating an invention that I think has been the greatest invention ever created!!!
The Greatest Invention has got to be light! Could you imagine the world without light? Light is a form of energy. In the dark, we only see something when light bounces off an object and shines into your eyes, which is called reflection. The sun is our biggest light source, it emits light in all directions. Everywhere we look, light is being reflected. Light lets us see clearly and makes things visible. Without light, we would live in a world with darkness and we wouldn’t see anything. All plants would die and eventually, all the animals that rely on plants for food, including us humans would die too. Life without the Sun and light would freeze all the animals and humans. Without light, our life and the environments life would be over and done. So surely Light has got to be the greatest invention ever.
What do you think?
Could you cope without Light?
What do you think? Do you agree with me? Tell me your thought done below in the comments section? 😀
For this week’s book of the week, I have chosen, “My Life as an Alphabet“.
This book is about a 12-year-old girl who is a little weird and this book is all about her life. She is a school bully and doesn’t have any friends until a new boy Douglas comes to the school and they become best friends. Her family life is complicated too.
I recommend this book to people 11 and up
I am certain you have all heard of film trailers which persuade us to go and watch a movie. In 5 /6 we have created book trailers to promote books that we have read and enjoyed. We hope you are persuaded to read some of these books by watching our book trailers. We created the trailers as part of a home learning task. Watch these trailers and let us know if you are persuaded to read these books. Tell us which book you are persuaded to read.
