The Year 2 and 3 will continue to look at History and changes in our community from the past to the present. They will have a close look at the changes that have occurred at North Kalgoorlie Primary School over the years.
We have a crow problem at school! There is a pesky crow (or crows) who have decided to make themselves seen in the staff car park by trying to steal the teachers window wiper blades! This crow (or crows) has also been seen admiring themselves in lots of windows causing quite a commotion with sounds of tapping and cawing. The students in Room 16 will work through the S.T.E.M. process over the term to try to deter the crows from the carpark, so that the teachers don’t need to keep relacing their window wiper blades. Through this process the students will gather data and analyse this data to work together in groups to design and make something to deter the crow/s.
