Our Year 5 and Year 6 students spend Term 1 working on creating radio segments in their Music session, and here are the results from the students who completed their segments and are happy to share. Please share this around because the more people who get to hear these amazing (and sometimes hilarious) segments, the bigger our audience!

Walk Safely to School – Friday 18 May

Posted by Mrs Wembridge | Posted in Foundation, Sustainability, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6 | Posted on May 13, 2018

On Friday 18 May it is Walk Safely to School Day
We are promoting our three Active Travel paths as a way of travelling to school safely.
Staff members will be meeting students at 8:20am at each of the three Active Paths starting points and walk with them back to school
The three starting points are:
1. Westleigh Gardens (Geelong Rd) – Mrs Wembridge, Mrs Pettigrew
2. Rushford Lane Car Park (Synnott St) – Miss Scarrott, Mrs Lacy
3. Soldiers Reserve (College Rd) – Mr Reichenbach, Gina/Riley O’Keefe, Mr Anglim

We understand that some people live too far to allow their children to walk or ride all the way, however dropping children off down the road and allowing them to walk/ride part of the way is still “getting active”!

Spanish Fiesta Day

Posted by Miss Scarrott | Posted in Art, Foundation, Spanish, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6 | Posted on October 20, 2017

Last week Werribee Primary School had its first ever Spanish Fiesta Day! It was a fantastic day and everyone had great fun! Teachers and students came dressed up in Spanish inspired clothing and learned many different Spanish dances with the help of a dance incursion. The foundation students had some fantastic “Day of the Dead” face paint done by our amazing year 6 students and all them had a blast! We also had the chance to try some Spanish food and the churros were a hit with the students!


We would like to thank all the teachers and students in dressing up and participating in the day and we hope to have another fiesta again!

A MASSIVE Thank you to the Specialist Teachers for organising the day! 🙂

Ole! Ole! Ole!

Love Your Locals Day – Werribee Open Range Zoo

Posted by Mrs Wembridge | Posted in Student leadership, Sustainability, Year 5 | Posted on September 23, 2017


We became Extinction Fighters at the “Love Your Locals” day at Werribee Open Range Zoo on Thursday 7 Sep. We were one of 11 schools participating. We gave one of the new EBBs (Eastern Barred Bandicoot) a new name. We chose ‘Cherish’ because we love the EBBs. We have had the opportunity to name 3 other bandicoots over previous years – Cooryong, CoCo and Crash. The Zoo currently has 30 EBBs in their breeding pens, as well as Maremma dogs in training to protect the EBBs.

 

Scienceworks Years 5 & 6

Posted by Miss Scarrott | Posted in Science, STEM, Year 5, Year 6 | Posted on August 28, 2017

On Thursday the 10th of August the Year 5 & 6 students had super fun day at Scienceworks. They attended a ‘Cool Stuff’ science show, visited the pumping station and had a ball exploring all of the amazing hands on activities in the Scienceworks museum.

Cool Stuff! A 30-minute science show using some ‘very cool’ liquid nitrogen demonstrations to illustrate the properties of solids, liquids and gases. Changes of state, expansion and contraction were all demonstrated using lots of fog, froth and fun.

Get Pumped! –  Students used a museum iPad that included videos, animations and other media to bring to life the amazing engineering feats involved in the construction of the Spotswood Pumping Station in the 1890s. They heard some stinky stories from the straining well and explored the magnificent Engine Room.

Posted by Miss Scarrott | Posted in camp, Year 5, Year 6 | Posted on March 31, 2017

Camp Kangaroobie was a blast! 116 students and 14 adults for 4 days of mud and mayhem. We climbed ropes, paddled canoes, competed in games, tackled an obstacle course, explored the farm, sang songs and learned bush dancing. The whole group had an amazing afternoon at the beach building sand castles, climbing sand dunes, splashing about and just relaxing. Press play to see just a few photos from 5/6 Camp 2017.

 

Our favourite memory of Camp Kangaroobie

Sabrina – ‘I like the ropes because we worked in teams.’

Blake – ‘When Miss Scarrott spoke to a Donkey it froze.’

Harshita – ‘The night walk because it was exciting and fun’

What was your favourite moment on camp?
