Minnamurra Rainforest Excursion

On Thursday we had a fantastic time exploring the Minnamurra Rainforest. We were taught how to care for the environment by:
- Walking on the pathways so that we don't step on any plants or animals
- Throwing our rubbish in the bins so that we don't introduce food that might make the animals sick
- Not swimming in the rivers so sunscreen and other products stay our of the water and it keeps clean

We noticed that the pathways were raised above the forest floor so that we protect the environment. On our walk we spotted spiders webs, ferns, butress roots, vines, strangler figs, oak trees, boulders, a river and we even saw a lyrebird. We learnt that the male lyrebird has the long curly feathers and can dance really well so that he can attract the female. It was an exhausting journey but also an amazing and rich learning experience!

Bounce was a blast this week!

Science Homework - Due Monday

We are sending home an extra sheet for homework this week which is due on Monday. In science this week we went on a Water Hunt around the school to find the water access points. It was a rich learning experience. We uncovered some fire hoses and hydrants as well as taps that have no handle. Some taps were painted purple and in the High School there are two water tanks that recycle rain water that falls on the roof. The tap in our creek is a slow release tap which helps us to save water so that we don't accidentally leave it running. 

For homework we ask that you and your child choose four places where you use water at home. Draw and write the ways that you use water in those places.
The sheet below will be sent home tomorrow (Wednesday).


Bounce is on again tomorrow. The students really enjoyed their first lesson last week. The focus was our motorbike landing position. Our feet were shoulder width apart, our knees were bent and our arms were out in front to help us balance.
