Last Friday, Year 1 students hosted a ‘Creating and Making’ afternoon to culminate their inquiry into how ‘People apply their understanding of forces and energy to invent and create’. The students spent several weeks exploring and investigating different types of forces before starting work on their very own toy design. They were then required to gather appropriate materials for assembling their unique design at our interactive afternoon with parents. We were very fortunate to have many of our wonderful Year 1 parents attend the afternoon and enjoy being part of the learning process with their children. The Year 1 classrooms and CIC were buzzing with creative energy and rich discussion. The children created amazing toys and were able to clearly explain their function and forces used when operating them. It was a fantastic afternoon and we are very proud of our students and thankful for such a supportive parent body.
