     Making News

    We have been exploring arrays in maths for the past 2 weeks. Here are some photos of our fantastic efforts.

    Physical Changes
    In Inquiry we have been exploring PHYSICAL CHANGES through making popcorn, melting ice, making toffee, melting chocolate and creating volcanoes. In each activity we have discovered and discussed solids, liquids and gases and how or why these changes occur. 

    Friday 26th June is the end of Term 2. Thank you for your support with our PMP, Kids' Café, excursions, classroom activities and for also guiding and supporting your children with their homework and reading at home. We hope you have an enjoyable and safe holiday with your children and your family and we will see you on Monday July 13th.
