The Science Festival

December14

A robot which can determine your emotions, was just one of the cool things at today’s Science Festival at Sajam.

We explored, listened, watched, experimented, wondered and volunteered for a variety of science activities. The photographs below show just some of them.

Optical illusions! Stare at the picture below. What happens?

Afterwards, we watched a show by a stunt man and learned about the science behind the special effects in films.

Another awesome day in Year 5!

Ancient Greek Week – Wars

December13

Over the last few days, Year 5 have been learning about some of the Ancient Greek wars and warriors.

First, they learned about The Battle of Marathon, 490 BC, against the Persians and made the connection to the marathon race today.

Next, was The Battle of Thermopylae, 480 BC, again against the Persians and the role of the 300 Spartans and King Leonidas.

The students have really enjoyed re-enacting some of the Ancient Greek battle strategies.

Ancient Greek Week

December13

This week is Ancient Greek week in Year 5.

Over the last few days we have been learning about the Ancient and Modern Olympics. Yesterday, was the Athens versus Sparta BIS Olympics.

After some discussion the students decided to include the following events:

Running (sprint), long jump, chariot racing (adapted to a wheel barrow race) discus, relay, wrestling and javelin.

The students really got into the spirit of things and everyone had lots of fun!

 

In the end, Sparta won the Olympics, but there is still everything to play for as we still have the debate and the re-enactment to go.
