Science observations

We have been learning about UV.
We had a fun afternoon exploring using UV beads.
We discovered that some rash shirts and swim shorts are good UV blockers
and that the UV beads even changed colour inside the classroom through the window.
We are learning the importance of protecting ourselves from the harmful rays but also the importance these some of the UV rays play in our environment.



Do you know any facts about UV?

Back to School

Check out the fun we are having being back at school.

To kick start the term we have begun with a focus on cooperative learning, relationship building and our class treaty. Together we are co-constructing our expectations of each other in Room 6 and getting to know each other along the way.

Important dates for your calendar:
