Term 2, Week 5

Hi students, parents and cargivers!

Our lesson this week is online live.  We will be using Webex - an online platfrom to do this. Webex can be used on smart devices and requires a screen and camera on the device - most tablets and smart phones are perfect! An email has been sent to students who identified last week that they would not be at school, to join the Webex session.  This is a great opportunity to catch up with their class mates and see what's happening in class.  

There will be a meeting time on the email, but as a reminder the class schedules are:

Wednesday 27th May:
11:05 - 12:45 Year 4/5 Ms Charatsis' class
1:25 - 3:05 Year 6/7 Mrs Hankinson's class

Thursday 28th May:
9:05 - 10:45 Year 5/6 Miss Wood's Class
1:25 - 3:05 Year 3/4 Ms Cooksley and Ms Abbey's Class

This week is experimentation week!

The students will be experimenting with the simple machines we have explored so far.  The students at home will need to print the resource sheets and conduct the experiments at home.  I will chat with them while they conduct their experiments via Webex and share their learning.
