Beetles Danceathon!
Year 5 and 6 rocked dancing to tunes by the Beatles.
Continuing with our journey into space, Year 5 had an opportunity to investigate our nearest star, the sun.  They learned how to safely observe the sun by projecting its image onto paper through a telescope.  The children then made scientific observations by drawing sunspots and recording the precise date and time so that future comparisons could be made.  We learned about the importance of safety and how we should never stare at the sun or use binoculars or telescopes for direct solar observation during daytime!
