Posted by mrtooth | Posted in Music, Year 5, Year 6 | Posted on June 1, 2018

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!

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.
