MU4 @ Riddells Creek enjoyed their first kitchen session this week. The menu included apple bread, zucchini slice and tomato, garlic and onion pasta. We also made zucchini pickles. We are very lucky to have so many wonderful parent volunteers, plus of course our fabulous kitchen guru, Michelle.

I’ve been in Mr.Gibsons classroom twice in a row, but it’s been a great two years and I’ve learnt a lot and made new friends.
It’s been really fun, but today the 16th of December I will be finishing Primary School and moving to High School. I’m a bit nervous, but mostly excited for the big step in my life.

Last week in mu7 we started doing lego robotics. We had the choice to do a dance bot, a sumo bot or a line tracking bot. The sumo bots get a 1 metre diameter circle. If it goes out of the circle the robot is disqualified. If the robot gets pushed out of the circle by the other robot the robot who pushed it out of the circle wins!
To win a dance bot comp you must follow the beat and stay within the 3 metro diameter
circle. Tracker bots must simply follow a line. The better your robot does the harder the line gets till there is only one robot left, the reigning champion!!!
This term in MU7 we are studying Leonardo Da Vinci. Today we drew sketches of simple machines in our visual diary’s like Leonardo did. Some of us even wrote backward, like Leonardo did. Here are the results:
On the second last day of term 2 MU7 went to the 100 Story Building. We caught a train to Footscray with BU1. We walked with BU1 to the 100 Story Building and then walked all the way to the Footscray Market. We did a scavenger hunt in groups and had to find different things at different shops and record it. When we had finished we walked back to the 100 Story Building and waited for BU1 to exit the building then we went inside. We got to write comic books with heroes and villains. We saw a lot of books, a story vending machine and loads more. We had so much fun and hope to go there again soon.
