Year 3 Street Science Incursion
On the last day of Term 3, the Year 3 students were visited by Mel from the Street Science crew. To begin the day we enjoyed a Science show where the students were able to watch, interact and consolidate their learning about friction, heating and cooling. After the use of flames, liquid nitrogen and friction by the expert, the students split into their class groups to complete experiments themselves. The first experiment involved testing the temperature of ingredients as they were mixed together. This saw the students using digital thermometers as they watched the temperature of the first mixture go up the second mixture go down. After this the students experimented as to which surfaces helped ice melt faster and which kept it cold longer. The students enjoyed the experience and were very talkative and excited to share their findings with each other.
We look forward to learning about animals, their classifications and the biomes they associate with, in Science for Term 4.

Year 4 Arts Excursion
During Term 3 Year 4 made an exciting journey to South Bank to visit the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and the GOMA Art Gallery. Most of the students hadn’t experienced a live orchestra and were amazed at the wonderful sounds coming from live music as they listened to the “Babar the Elephant” story. Many students have said they are inspired and can’t wait for to be involved in the Give it A Go Band program in 2019.
Lunch was enjoyed by all at South Bank before participating in some fun activities at the “We can be Heroes” children’s exhibition at GOMA. The highlight for the students was making themselves into a digital superhero and seeing themselves on the big screen.
We’d like to thank Mr Jakins and all the parent helpers for giving up their time and assisting in making this fun day such a success.
