Learning Continues

What an exciting day it has been for Middle School. It was business as usual at Mackillop Views. We had a busy morning in our specialist classes and also made pancakes. It has been wonderful to see the ‘F’ in our FARM code throughout this term. We have become true leaders in showing our community just how flexible we really are. It doesn’t matter what space we are in, learning is always happening. Well done everyone!

Our Changing Earth Incursion

Today the Middles investigated and explored how nature changes the Earth through  the natural processes of weathering and erosion. They also explored the ‘rock cycle’ and classified samples of sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks. They observed the effects of chemical weathering through a variety of experiments. What a wonderful way to get us thinking about our inquiry unit.

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.
