Grand Parents Day

On the 26th of February the prep 1/2 had a grand parents day. It was fun having the grand parents and friends come over to do some activities with us. First we made a frame, then we had our photo taken with our grand parents and we glued it on, then we gave it to them as a present for coming We had quiche and cup cakes for morning tea. Thanks to everyone for coming to grandparents day.

Science - Mentos Challenge

Today in Science we did an experiment with Diet Coke and mentos.  We predicted what we thought would happen when the mentos was added to the Diet Coke.  Then we watched the experiment and discussed what we observed.

Grandparents Day... it's coming up

On the 26th of Feb the prep 1/2 students are inviting our grandparents to school for grandparents day. Prep 1/2s are cooking scones and other things for the parents and will have activities to do with the grandparents such as reading, asking interview questions and art and craft activities. 

 Written by Isabel and Charlotte 

 We have been working hard on invitation writing this week and hope to have as many Grandparents (or aunts, uncles, parents, friends) as possible next Tuesday from 9am till 11. We are investigating what it was like growing up when they were young, compared to what it is like now. We will have some activities organised and a morning tea specially made to celebrate the day. We hope you can make it!

Today we did a science experiment.  We used milk, food colouring and dish washing liquid. 

We put the milk into a tray and then added the different colours of food colouring.  We watched what happened.  Then we added the dish washing liquid and watched what happened.  It was amazing.

Hannah said: "The colours mixed together."

Milk and food colouring.

The dish washing liquid was added.

Colours mixed together.

Parent Information Night

Welcome to the 2013 Parent Information Night. We're glad you could make it and look forward to a great year at WPS. Our website aims to extend our classroom beyond the school yard and into the community. We will be show casing work and allowing students to compose their own posts to share with our wider community.
All posts are available for comments and this is where the real benefits come from! By leaving named comments on posts about the work we are doing students receive real feedback and become increasingly aware of how the internet goes. So jump online and have a look around, we'd love to share our learning with you!
