Art Camp

Some lucky Year 6 students started the term with a memorable overnight stay at The Briars for the Art Camp. This camp was organised by Ms Christie and some other Art specialists from various Peninsula schools.

Please enjoy this clip highlighting some of their activities.

Maths Incursion and Sport

The Year 6 students enjoyed the opportunity to create a vast array of structures using planks during last week’s Maths incursion. This was followed up by the Family Maths Night where families could visit each year level and have fun exploring and engaging in all the different Maths activities on offer.

Year 6 Sport has been very competitive over the past few weeks with classes competing against each other in a range of challenging activities.

Coding apps using Javascript

Most 12-year-olds love playing videogames — but Thomas Suarez taught himself how to create them. After developing iPhone apps like “Bustin Jeiber,” a whack-a-mole game, he is now using his skills to help other kids become developers.

Students in 6 at Mount Martha Primary School are starting to learn how to code simple apps using Javascript. You can click the links in the Padlets below to have a look at their coding.

Term 3!

Dear Parents,
We hope you had a lovely break despite the weather! The Specialist timetable for Semester 2 has been updated on our blog.
We would like to thank you all again for coming in to share in your child’s learning at the Student Led Conferences last term. They were so proud of their achievements and did a fantastic job of explaining their learning.
We are all looking forward to another busy and successful term.
Kind wishes,
Donna and Lucinda

Real World Maths

Today the students presented their Real World Maths projects to the Year 5 and 6 students. It was a great way to showcase all this term’s hard work. Students confidently talked about their topic, the amount of maths involved and how they worked as a team. I was impressed by their knowledge and ability to field questions.This project also identified how creative and industrious our students can be. I think this project may just have been this term’s highlight. Well done 6C.

STEM Challenge: Build a Bridge

The Task: Working in small groups, the children designed and built a bridge that spanned 50cm (between two tables) and supported the weight of a moving toy car. They were only able to use some common classroom materials such as paper, straws, masking tape, tooth picks, icy pole sticks and string.

Look at the following pictures to see their bridges in progress and if they met the brief.
