For the next six weeks all the senior classes will be doing science tasks, in preparation for the Science Fair. We have to do at least eight tasks over six weeks. The activities that we chose are really exciting and I think we are going to have so much fun! Some examples of the things we have to do are:
- Make a working volcano!
- Draw a detailed picture of an animal in it's own environment, also include a predator, food source, and your animal of choice in a food chain.
- Construct a colour wheel displaying the primary and secondary colours
As you can see the activities are really exciting! I am sure we will have an awesome time completing this homework!

This week in room1 we had to complete a task about the printing press, we had to find the history and impact on the world when the printing press was invented in 1447. Here in room one we had some pretty out of mars ways of showing our findings. Some people went the fancy way and used card and colour while others just went with the pen and paper. In room 1 we also found it really cool to do this project not only did we learn some pretty cool facts but we had fun doing it!!!!! Our class done some pretty intense learning while we were researching or facts and information. The printing press project was an excellent choice of project. GO MRS SMALLBONE!! ;) The printing press was an awesome project but sometimes we got confused!!! Like some websites say it was invented in 1440 but some say it was 1445! But we didn't mind. We took an awesome photo that you should check out as well!

This week Knox school from western Australia came to preform at St Mary's they entertained us with their band that played a wide range of selections of musical instruments such as the electric keyboard, trombone, flute, drum and much much more. They also had a awesome choir that sung some cool songs like "mamma i'm a big girl now" from Hair Spray. They also invited us to another concert preformed by schools all over Australia and New Zealand. We took the invitation it was on a Friday and we were transported by 4 huge buses. It was a good concert but nothing compared to Knox schools plus the choir was a bit pitchy here and there!!!
