3D Objects

Middle school students were kept busy this week during Maths sessions.  Using only  matchsticks and blu tak  students created 3D objects. 

 

  • What 3D object did you make?
  • What were the properties of your 3D object? 
  • Where in the environment is your 3D object found?

Good evening middle school students and families!

I have put together a short clip about our wonderful Melbourne Symphony Orchestra experience last week.

Can your remember the reason for the different coloured tops the musicians were wearing?

Can you remember which instruments belong to which instrument family?

What was your highlight for the day? I know I had a lot 👍

Enjoy the clip and remember to like the post 😀

Mother’s Day Picnic.

What a wonderful way to end yet another wonderful week! The preparation leading up to the afternoon was filled with lots of making and baking. Thank you to all the mothers, grandmothers and significant others who took some time out from their busy schedules to spend some time with us. We wish you all a very happy and blessed Mother’s Day.

Excursion Day! Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO)

Excursion day has arrived! Today, the Wattles and Waratahs went into the city to watch the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra perform their show, “Meet the Orchestra” and “Bamboozled” at Hamer Hall. We stopped off for lunch at the National Gallery of Victoria before  being taken on a musical journey. We met the different sections of the orchestra through classical music pieces and theme songs. Then, we used our body percussion and vocal skills by joining in to help create the Bamboozled music, along with the other audience members and with the MSO.
