Genius Hour.

Genius Hour is 2 hours of making and or creating. It has to be something you’re interested in.

This week our grade had Genius Hour, here is some information about our projects.

Molly and Natalie were sewing sock dolls and clothes for them. You make a sock doll by getting a sock, sewing the sides to make arms, stuffing it then sewing up the hole at the bottom of the sock. Molly and Natalie love sewing.


Brodie was researching different types of rabbits. He went on Google to research about the different rabbits and he was using the information to create a powerpoint presentation. Brodie chose to research rabbits because he likes rabbits. He has a pet rabbit and he wants to learn more about them.


Bella’s Hair Salon was a BIG hit! Loads of people went there. You could get your hair sprayed a different colour or styled.




Tobe’s duck poster is very interesting. Tobe loves ducks and likes learning more about them.IMG_3027

Harrison’s drawings looked awesome! (and he didn’t copy them off images, he drew them all himself!) If people don’t have an idea for a character in a story then they can use one of Harrison’s characters. Great idea Harrison!IMG_3029

Erin’s sewing was cool. She was sewing a skirt for Isha.IMG_3039

Mia was learning more about her culture. Her mum helped her. They created a powerpoint presentation so we could all learn more about her culture and country at Uluru. We learnt some Pitjantjatjara words and saw pictures of her country.IMG_3045

Ella made a horse out of cardboard. It was very tall! Ella loves horses.IMG_3048

Brandan and Frankie made a powerpoint presentation on AFL history.IMG_3021

Rosie and Eliza made very messy, interesting science experiments.IMG_3035

And I wrote this report on our Genius Hour! It was a really fun Genius Hour and we are excited for the next one!

Science Day

Last Wednesday (14/8/13) Grade 3/4s and 5/6s went to Tylden Primary School for a Science day.

We got to do four different activities. One was about wind turbines, we needed to make a wind turbine that could lift a cup off the ground. Another activity was about epidemic and the facial tumour disease that the Tasmanian devils can catch. We played a game to simulate how the disease spreads, each day more devils got infected. We also cut up an apple to indicate how much of the Earth is used to grow food (It was less than 1/32 of the apples peel). The last activity was the favourite, we got to make chocolate chip banana cookies.

Which activity was your favourite and why?
How did that activity relate to science?

How to make your own Snot!


1/2 Cup Water

1 Cup Cornflour

Green food colouring



  1. Put the cornflour into a bowl
  2. Slowly add the water, just a bit at a time, mixing with fingers as you go until smooth
  3. Add a few drops of food colouring to add real snot appeal
  4. Mixture will appear solid/hard after created, but pick it up and let it ooze!
What did you notice about your Snot?
Was it fun to make?

Science Night

Science Night on PhotoPeach

On science night, first we did a kookaburra game where there were baby kookaburras and adult kookaburras and they had to feed us M&Ms and yellow ones made you sick if you only had one but if you had more than one you died. There were 12 activities and they were mak-ing a torch, blowing a cheese and bacon ball or malteser with a straw, making something with Lego, writing your name and putting a nut and bolt on, all with gardening gloves or snow gloves on, making a boat, making soap bubbles, making paper bangers, dropping a ball from a ladder, making a parachute, making a hypnotising spinner, making a star out of match sticks and a number challenge. My favourite experiment was trying to balance the cheese and bacon ball on the straw by blowing through the straw. I did it too!
