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.

Suzanne Cory Experience Year 6

Posted by Miss Scarrott | Posted in Science, STEM, Year 6 | Posted on August 23, 2017

On Friday the 18th of August the year 6 students had an amazing experience visiting Suzanne Cory High School. They were lucky enough to participate in a number of hands on science lessons. The visit also doubled as a transition day to give the year 6 students some insight to what it will be like at Secondary School. They conducted various experiments and further developed their science knowledge with support from the teachers and students at Suzanne Cory.

The activities included;

  • Methane bubbles
  • Rainbow fizz flame test
  • Red cabbage indicator
  • Dry ice
  • Motors

The biggest ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ definitely came from the methane bubbles session!

Bloxels

Posted by Miss Scarrott | Posted in Digital Technology, eSmart, Year 6 | Posted on June 30, 2017

The ICT eSmart Team are extremely grateful for those parents who made a voluntary contribution towards ICT at Werribee Primary School. With these contributions we were able to purchase a class set of Bloxels.

I asked 6S students what they thought of bloxels and here are some of the responses:

Loki – ‘It puts your creative mind to work. I love it!’

Blake – ‘It really gets your mind thinking of what to do, it gets your critical mind working. I have no words to say how much I like Bloxels it’s too good.’

Zack – ‘They’re amazing, I love using them.’

Matty – ‘I like it because I get to make games.’

Gloria – ‘It is very creative. It’s hard to find words to say how much I like it, it’s fantastic.’

Harshita – ‘I think it’s really good because you get to create your own video game. It’s really fun to use!’

Braydan – ‘I love the way you have free choice to create whatever you feel like. It’s fun because you get to build your own creations and it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks, you get to make what you like.’

Sam – ‘It’s really fun and creative.’

James – ‘Bloxels are my favourite, because it makes me really happy to use, it is so much fun.’

Press play to see some year 6 students using Bloxels for the first time.

Bloxels is a hands-on platform for kids to build, collaborate, and tell stories through video game creation. They enable students to build, capture, design, play and share their very own video games.

Students can play fun games and channel their creative potential as they gain greater understanding of important topics like design logic, and computer science and demonstrate their knowledge of history, science and mathematics while developing increasingly important coding and STEM principles through the games they create.

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?

GRIP Leadership Conference

Posted by Miss Scarrott | Posted in Student leadership, Year 6 | Posted on February 28, 2017

Last Friday was a very exciting day for all of the captains. We were lucky enough to attend the GRIP Leadership conference in Melbourne. We had the opportunity to meet with student leaders from other schools in Victoria. Through fun & interactive activities we learnt about what it takes to be a great leader. We all generated ideas for how we can improve Werribee Primary School and look forward to implementing some of our ideas soon. Thankyou to Miss Scarrott and Miss Van Ravenstein for taking us.

Water safety

Posted by Tyler_eSmart | Posted in Year 6 | Posted on November 23, 2016

During the swimming program, the year 6 non-swimmers have been learning about water safety. A few students made posters to demonstrate their learning. Here are some examples:

Five ways to be safe around water;

SLIP on a shirt!

SLAP on a hat!

SLOP on some sunscreen!

SEEK some shade!

SLIDE on sunglasses!

The creators of this poster, Angela and Day Day, made this poster to remind everyone a great message: Be SunSmart, especially around water.

The creators of this post, Ruby and Angela, made this for the same purpose; to remind everyone the importance of being safe around water, although this poster focuses mainly on being safe at the beach.

What do you do to be safe and SunSmart around water?

Year 5/6 Hoop time

56 Hoop time 2016 

 

Yesterday Miss Scarrott and Miss Elliott took 6 teams to Eagle stadium to compete in a basketball competition. We were very proud of our students for showing the school values, trying hard all day, showing excellent team work and overall, enjoying themselves.

A huge thank you to Davin and Michelle for helping out all day. 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a snapshot by Piper from 6M about yesterday;

Sweat drips off my dangerously hot head onto the polished wooden floor. Time is ticking rapidly, I’m starting to panic. I’m frantically searching for someone to pass to… No one’s there. My feet thud on the court. Running one side to another, it was longer than I thought. So many opportunities out there but I want this for myself. I shoot for goal, thud, thud, the ball bounced on the ring hitting the clear backboard and into the basket. I jump up and down excitedly, “I can’t believe I got it in” I thought. 

 

Girls footy

On Monday the 13th of May, some of the year six girls played footy. The weather was on our side with a nice sunny day and not the slightest bit of wind. The girls enjoyed tackling and unfolding new skills that they hadn’t learnt yet. We won two games and lost two games, then played a friendly match with our Lady of the Southern Cross. We finished fourth overall and we were all very proud of ourselves. Every one showed good sportsmanship and played fairly, but the most important thing, was that everyone had fun, and left the field with a smile! Also, a big thanks to Miss Scarrott, and all the parents that came along, especially Mrs Caserta for bringing us cut oranges and snakes.  🙂  🙂
