Our National Science Week experiments have been in full swing at Greta! The children have explored aspects such as hypothesising, observing, investigating, predicting, analysing and evaluating. The experiments they have conducted so far include; creating storm clouds, exploring ‘germs’, salt paintings, rainbow clouds, lemon fizz and magnetic paintings.
This week at Waratah 1 we are celebrating book week as we are also have our book fair running. This years theme is ‘Curious Creatures, Wild Minds’.
The children and educators at Cardiff Tillys have been very busy with their science experiments today! The Echidna’s took part in the ‘Elephant’s Toothpaste’ experiment. This is where we use a catalyst such as yeast and warm water mixed together to quickly decompose Hydrogen Peroxide which results in an erupting foam! The Koala’s engaged in…Details
This week at Tillys Fern Bay we are experimenting and investigating all week as we explore National Science Week. This year the theme is protecting our oceans. For our first experiment this morning we discussed how plastics and styrofoam are dangerous to our oceans as the sea animals eat them. We hypothesised that starch packing…Details
NATIONAL SCIENCE WEEK The Lizard friends at Tillys Cardiff were involved in an experiment where they added pepper to water, then rubbed their finger in soap and touched the water. The children observed as the pepper dispersed and did not get on their fingers! The Echidna children then completed a milk and food dye experiment,…Details
Dental Health Week at Greta Good oral health is fundamental to overall health and wellbeing. Early childhood is a critical time when lifetime habits are established. Supporting oral health promotion in the early years is an investment in the future health of Australians. In Australia over the past decade, there has been a slight increase…Details
Waratah 2’s National Science Week Tuesday experiments Science Week mixed with our Colour Project gives us colour mixing. The children in the Sweet Pea room enjoyed the cause and effect of the droppers and food dye as well as the colour mixing that occurred using porous paper. Their developing Science minds was supported through questions…Details
Yesterday, Bolwarra’s Koala room had little scientists exploring germs! The educators helped the children to mix some solution in their hands and then used the UV light to see the ‘germs’ on their hands. After washing their hands clean of the solution, they investigated again to make sure they washed all the ‘germs’ away!
National Science Week with the Little Hippos and Panda Cubs at Rutherford The Little Hippos and Panda Cubs enjoyed an ice and salt experiment to keep in line with their current learning interest of ‘Under The Sea’. The children loved listening and watching the ice crackle and split!Details
