Dear Parents / Careers,
Your child will have the chance to solve their own science mystery by completing a science project in Term Three, experiencing the joy of discovery.
Certain stages of this project will be completed at school with the teacher’s help and support. Students will be assisted at school to ask appropriate research questions and do background research about their topic. They will be guided in constructing a hypothesis which can then be tested at home. Students will do the experiments at home and analyse their results. The project board will also be completed at home.
This week, students will take home three topics which they are interested in investigating. Please discuss these with your children. They only need to investigate one area. Be mindful of the cost of equipment you will need to purchase for your child to do the experiments at home. Also consider how much time you have, to be involved with what they are doing. If you are time poor, an easier experiment may be worth choosing.
Students have been given time at school to print out information about their three choices. If none of these choices seem suitable, please utilise the website www.sciencebuddies.org to find an alternative.
Once you approve the project your child selects, please sign the completed Science Project Proposal Form, and return it to school this week.
In His service,
Anna Watts, Sharron Hall, Kathryn Leech, Cain McClearly and Stuart Cooper
4C had a wonderful day hearing from some fabulous informative presentations today. Among some of them were how to play soccer and Ugio, how to play a trumpet and guitar, how to make a paper chatterbox, loom band creations, and then… some wonderful chocolate delights! We saw how to make chocolate balls, hot chocolate, iced chocolate, pancakes, fruit skewers, fruits salads, and even a new invention… ‘marshmallow delight! Thank you to every member of 4C, for their hard work in preparing these entertaining procedures for us to enjoy and even taste test! What a greta time we all had!
Watch out Master Chef, 4C has some bright stars headed your way!
