Joining in with our Iceland topic, the children completed Aurora Borealis inspired pictures using chalk.

The lightning pictures were created using wax for the lightning, sponging over the page with a collection of colours, waiting until the background was dry and then adding in detail!

Some action shots of 6th Class creating movement circuits using 10-15 different movements in each group!  The children then show the others their circuit and then follow along themselves.

Team Hope Christmas Shoe box Appeal

On Monday, Team Hope came back to school to collect the Christmas shoe boxes which the children had been busily packing over the mid-term break.  Every child carried their shoe box down to the Robert Smyth Hall and built them up against the back wall to make a very colourful mountain!  Sixth Class helped carry out and load the boxes into the Team Hope van.  Well done to all the children who took part! Taney children sent off an amazing 359 boxes to surprise and thrill the lucky boys and girls who receive them; what a fabulous Christmas present to get!!

Last Thursday Sixth Class went on a trip to the Rediscovery Centre.  The children engaged in an “Everyday Engineering” workshop which introduced various engineering concepts and processes, types of engineering, and illustrated how engineering is an essential part of our lives.  The hands-on activities included engineering challenges from K’Nex towers and circuit building, to constructing an earthquake-proof house.  Some of our houses even managed to stay intact during the earthquake!  A great day was had by all.

As part of our Australia S.E.S.E. topic we are studying the Aboriginal People.  The children created their own Aboriginal dance.  They used instruments to add in a musical element and a beat to follow.
