1/2 LT read Bell parent Matt Magain’s book Charlie Weatherburn and the Flying Machine! It’s a wonderful tale of a mathematician who wants to fly. There are some interesting words and fun rhyming throughout! Afterwards we designed our own flying machines. Above are some of our efforts!

1/2LT present ‘How to make a Lava Lamp!’

Posted by moya | Posted in ICT | Posted on October 24, 2014

Yesterday in 1/2L we had a fabulous, fun filled, scientific afternoon making mini lava lamps!

Working in small groups, we made ‘how to’ videos to explain the experiment. We then voted the best video, as a whole group. The videos needed to include all the aspects of a procedural text – Title, Aim (Introduction), Materials (Equipment) and the Procedure (Method). We also thought a little bit of creativity would add to it and make it entertaining for an audience.

There was amazing learning happening and some fantastic teamwork throughout the afternoon. Every group had a unique little take on the experiment and made the video their own. Some groups included everyone, some filmed up nice and close and others used humour to make it interesting. We are incredibly proud of all the 1/2s and the hard work but we could only have one winner.

Below is our top pick, maybe you can follow the steps and try this at home too!

Today the 1/2s had a visit from Market Fresh! There were two lovely ladies named Carolyn and Tisha who talked to us about the Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market in Melbourne. There are 4,000 people who work at the market. It is the biggest market in the Southern hemisphere and the 5th biggest market in the world. How cool!

They explained how fruit and vegetables got from the farm to us. First they harvest and collect the fruit and vegetables. Then it is packaged and transport to the market. After this it gets bought and taken to a shop to sell the fruit and vegetables. Then we buy it.

After our great talk and little video, we got to eat the delicious fruit that is supplied to us by the market and the excellent farmers. We ate cucumbers, oranges, apples, bananas, capsicum, pear and more. Some of us were very brave and tried new things. It was incredibly delicious and a great snack, some of the freshest food we had ever eaten!

A big thank you to our parent helpers who chopped up all the delicious fruit and vegetables for us. You are wonderful!

This event has come and gone but these videos and photos are too good not to share! Last term students across the school learnt a range of skills from professional athletes and participated in three great sports – athletics, taekwondo and hip hop dancing – get them to show you their DJ and rapper moves at home. A great way to keep active and have fun. Maybe you could try them out on over the weekend in the sun?!

What a week in 1/2LT!

This week, in 1/2LT, we’ve had a massive science week to kick start our new area of focus! On Tuesday we had a visit from the people at Hands On Science. We experimented with vinegar, baking soda and detergent. We also did a cabbage water experiment. We learnt about reactions and different materials. It was scienterrific!

We did an experiment in the classroom too. We blew up a balloon on a water bottle by mixing baking soda and vinegar. It created a gas when it reacted and made the balloon bigger. It exploded and went all over Moya, with a little on Maggie and Winnie.

We have started our new 1/2 reading and numeracy rotations, worked on spelling and refreshed our money and time in maths.

We have also looked at the three different states of matter. They are solid, liquid and gas. We played a great game of tiggy to help us understand what the particles in matter look like in the different three states. Then we did a sorting activity during class to help us identify these things in our world.
