Four teams of Year 6 engineering whizzkids took part in the Vector EPro8 STEM Competition, competing against other local schools to solve intricate problems using maths, science, electronics and technology.
It was a nailbiting event with Wentworth teams consistently in the running for the top spots and a ticket to the semi-finals. After two and a half hours, our jointly-third placed ‘Science Infection’ team were involved in a tense “build-off” to decide the final spot – and won by a massive 6mm!!!
Congratulations to all our teams – you were amazing!
What an out-of-this-world extravaganza of space exploration!!! Our production, “The Final Frontier” was an epic tale of the struggle between the forces of good and evil, throwing in a healthy dose of science fiction fun for good measure!
Roll over, Beethoven ‘cos the boys (and girls) are back in town!
What a wonderful, talented group we have in our class! From presenters to singers; from musicians to dancers – the talent on display at our annual Primary Festival was incredible. Not even the exploding sound mixer could dampen the atmosphere or prevent the show from going on.
Congratulations, everyone, on such a toe-tapping, foot-stomping, hand-clapping success!
We had to understand teamwork and sustainability to find the treasure in the recent Treasure Hunt show, where inhabitants of Seeland and Treeview had to work together to venture into the Beyond and find the missing songs of the Trees and Seas.
The Year 6 class had an incredibly busy schedule for their Wellington trip last week. It was an early start for the airport and, once we had checked in to our hotel, we headed to the iconic Wellington cable cars for a quick ride and to admire the views of the city.
Our Parera Class have been lucky enough to acquire a box of WW1 artefacts – each with its own story attached. We have discovered the real young Kiwi men who served in WW1 and learned a little about their experiences before, during and after the war.
