The Grade 5s had a challenging first term in the Design and Technology lessons learning to manipulate wire and work with pliers but their hard work paid off with beautiful end results! This was a new project taken on this year and they certainly reaped the rewards of their perseverance and positive attitudes. Look at how stunning these cacti are!
We hope that you all enjoyed our presentation of the prairie dog.
Our Grade 5 children were supposedly approached by the SABC to create and present a nature documentary for television on their soil creatures. They used this opportunity to present the information on their soil creature posters to the rest of the class in an interesting and creative way. Everyone remained fully engaged in what was being said throughout all of the presentations. They really loved hearing about all the different animals and had so much fun watching their friends pretend to be TV presenters.

These two crazy scientists were most entertaining!
The Sisters in Science taught us all about the hedgehog – apparently they have about 500 fleas each.
