Hovercraft Challenge!

Students in 6B were provided with pop-top lids, masking tape, balloons, and CDs and asked to make a hovercraft with a team. The teams then raced their hovercrafts. There was a balloon tampering incident, but overall the racers had a good day of competition at the track. Please enjoy our footage of the competition below. Shout out to the flag bearers, boom mic operators, scorekeeper, and commentators for their enthusiasm!

Year 6 Shirts!

How stylish do our Year 6 kids look in their new shirts? Our Year 6 design was created by Grayson. What an exciting way to end the term. These guys are looking #onfleek

ANZAC: Lest we forget

Thank you to all of our students for their excellent behaviour, respect and contribution to our school ANZAC service today. Our student leaders delivered the service beautifully and our class representatives helped commemorate this solemn occasion during the wreath-laying ceremony. Thank you to our special guests from the Mayfield RSL and to the parents who attended. Well done, THPS.

Storybird Sharing

Students in 5W, 5/6A OC, and 6B have been working on an imaginative writing task this term. Using the Storybird website, students have created beautiful narratives with Storybird artworks to share with younger readers in their buddy classes and the library. Today, we had a sharing session where students read each other’s books, which was perfect for pyjama day! Keep an eye out on our class blogs over the next few days to read digital copies of the narratives.

Children’s University – April Challenge

April Online Challenge – Camouflage occurs when objects are disguised so they cannot be seen easily. In their natural environment, animals have developed colours that enable them to blend into their environment, for example, a tiger’s stripes. This is mostly so they cannot be seen by other animals that might prey on and eat them. Humans also utilise camouflage to their advantage. For example, our ANZACs wear uniforms designed to help them blend in to their surroundings so that they cannot be spotted by the enemy. 

Your challenge for this month is to choose an environment from around the world (it could be snow, a desert, the rainforest or your school) and then design an outfit which you could wear to camouflage yourself. You can choose to draw, cut and paste pictures or even create and wear the outfit yourself! Be sure to share the outfit and the environment on the CUA Facebook page! Take evidence such as photos or drawings to Ms Armstrong & Mrs Schonberger – time allocated for the challenge will be at our discretion.
