In Term 3, we have been studying Movement and Energy. In particular, all students have been learning about simple and complex machines.

Today we celebrated all our investigations with a Bee-bot party. Have a look at the amazing food we ate!

In 2013, 3/4E has again been working with Kinder Red to identify and support Gifted and Talented students in Kindergarten and Stage 2.

In Term 1, we have been Working Together to understand how we grow and change.

Year 3 and 4 students have taught Kindergarten how to program Beebots to travel around a number of floor games. They have worked together to design new homes for their Beebots using recyclable materials.

As you can see in the pictures, our buddies worked together to make sure each home had an entrance and exit so that more than one Beebot could fit in the house.  Each house needed a ramp where Beebots could travel to an upper level. It was important to get the angle of the ramp right.
