Fluffy Scones

Grades 3 and 4 were honoured and delighted to cook 10 dozen scones for a retirement celebration for Mrs Carmichael. Everyone was so careful with their folding and kneading, resulting in fluffy, light scones.

Gravity

In Science, the Level 2 students participated in an experiment which taught them to understand that gravity is a force that pulls objects down to Earth. Student investigated how far a toy car is pushed by a ball when you change the height of the ramp. The students enjoyed experimenting with different ramp inclines and measured the distance using popsticks.

Mural for Mullum

A new mural is planned for Mullum! Mullum was lucky to win a competition held by Smiling Minds and receive funds for this wonderful project! The colour scheme, a collection of colours chosen to help stimulate the senses, will represent our stunning Mount Dandenong Ranges backdrop. The students will contribute to the mural with a collection of 'palm stones' crafted in terracotta clay and marked with impressions, symbolising themselves. The mural will introduce the first chapter in the story behind our school symbol, Bunjil, The Eagle.

Bucket Drumming

This term we have introduced Bucket Drumming!  What a fun way to make some funky rhythms and learn about the basics of drumming.  We are lucky to have the amazing Laura Harris who demonstrated some fantastic skills and rhythms to our students last week.

Chickens

How cute am I?

If you come and visit me in my chicken coop, you'll see that I like my new home.  I can run around the vegetable gardens, admire myself in a mirror and explore the shed.

Book Swap

Tuesday morning our School Captains organised a Book Swap.  They collected books from students across the school and set up tables with the books.  Within minutes the books were swapped and students went away happy with their pickings.

Junkbot Faces

Junior students have explored colour mixing, Primary and Tertiary colours to create textural finishes for their Junkbot Faces. We looked at examples of rusty metal and mixed paint to emulate the texture and tones of rust. We talked about 'patina' and 'verdigris', which is the green finish found on sculptures (think Statue Of Liberty). The careful brushwork and paint finishes the students achieved, beautifully enhance the details of the bits and bobs they chose to create their Junkbot features.

Write a Book in a Day

Wednesday 24 August was the Write a Book In a Day for twelve of our Grade 5/6 students who worked for 12 hours to plan, write, edit and illustrate a complete book.  This was a fundraising activity for the Kids Cancer Project and our students raised over $2000 for the project, what a huge effort.

La Tarantella

Lo sai che, (Did you know), that the dance is also known as “the dance of the spider”. The word ‘Tarantella’ is derived from the Italian word tarantola, meaning tarantula.

The bite of the tarantula was believed to be highly poisonous and led to a condition known as tarantismo, a type of trance.  They would dance with quick steps, moving their body and clapping their hands to move the venom out of their body. They also flapped their skirts and waved handkerchiefs or scarves to remove the spider.

Today it is often danced at Italian weddings and celebrations.
