Camp Coolamatong

On Monday the 6th of June grades 6N (Half of 6N), 6K, 5C and 5T went off to camp Coolamatong in Paynesville. It was a 4 When we arrived there we got introduced by the camp staff and leaders. We got a small tour and learnt our way around the place.

 I was in group 8 and the first activity we did was going on a boat. We travelled to a really nice beach and played a game. It was loads of fun but the sand was really cold so everyone got cold feet. The next day we went canooing. That was exciting but really wore out my arms.

 By then I was tired but I still had many exciting things to look forward to. The other activities were bike riding (which I didn’treally like), archery, survivor, and last but not least bush craft. For bush craft we cooked pancakes, popcorn and damper. I liked the pancakes most. We cooked them on our own fires which we struggled to keep alight. All the activities were really fun and I really enjoyed camp this year.

Catch Me If You Can

In the grade 5/6 area we are doing a subject about Forensic Science. During this term the classes are going to have different Science experiments in their classrooms and even have some Forensic Scientists come and visit. We are going to try and solve a crime that has occured at our school, this crime is the robbery of some Collingwood Football Club Premiership Memorabilia that is owned by the school Principal Mr Grossek, this is very serious crime if you understand Mr Grossek’s crave for the Collingwood Football Club.

Science Reports

On Thursday the 12th of May, 6N made slime out of 3 ingredients: cornflour, water and green food colouring. It was a pretty messy experiment but it gave us a bit more knowledge about solids and liquids and the way the different mollecules react with each  other. Mrs Naismith told us that there were two ways that it changed and that we had to figure out the active ingredients for each change. She then told us that we were going to write a science report and include a diagram with it.
