Today Year 6 learnt about traditional Korean games. We played a game that involved kicking a sparkly shuttle cock as many times as possible until the shuttle cock hits the ground. It was more difficult than you think. We got into teams and played against each other, no team won but we still had a great time. Thanks Ms Yeom.

To experiment with electric circuits they made two animals from play dough and stuck light emitting diodes (LED) lights in them. They connected a battery and WALLAH!!! They lit up. They tried this with salt play dough and sugar play dough, to see what happened. They discovered that salt play dough conducts electricity while sugar play dough doesn’t. They also discovered that they could put in nine LED lights before the lights didn’t shine anymore. They conducted another experiment to find out whether stretching and squishing play dough contorted sound. They discovered that stretching the play dough made the sound higher whereas squishing the play dough made the sound lower.
Year 4 had lots of fun exploring the world of electricity.
Last Thursday Years 3-6 and some Year 2s went to our annual Athletics Carnival at the Chatswood Rotary War Memorial Field.
There were 100, 200 and 800 metre races and a relay races. There was also a fun carnival where each grade were able to have some unusual races like skipping and sack racing. We also had tug-o-war. There was field events as well, such as the long jump. The other field events like, high jump, discuss and shot put will be held back at school.
Congratulations to the students who made it to Zone.
A special thanks to Ms Dundas for organising a wonderful Carnival.
