Wow what a musical! On Wednesday the 25th of July the Year 4 students were lucky enough to travel to the Whitehorse Arts Centre to see the Emmaus production of ‘Suessical’ the musical, and what a fantastic day it was. It was fun, engaging and had lots of energy.
Here are some quotes from the students…
“ The dances were very well done- The wickersham brothers in particular were fantastic. Lucas Faundez was fantastic”
“Cat in the hat was a fantastic character to watch, very engaging and funny. The fortnight/flossing dance was my highlight!”
“The energy from the chorus made the show! Very powerful voices from the principal actors”
“The costumes were excellent”
Although the students missed their lunch break, all agreed it was worth it to see the amazing and talented performers!
On Monday the 16th of July the 5/6 students had a space incursion where we learnt about the planets and stars. We all went into a huge inflatable cave in the MPR that looked a bit like a jumping castle but it wasn’t for jumping on.
We learned that Jupiter has lots of moons and with some being named after Galileo Galilei who was the first to see them. We also learnt that the first planet that you will see outside at night is Mercury. It often appears just after 7 o’clock but Mercury will also be the first one to disappear out of the sky. There are many star formations to look out for in the sky such as the Scorpion and the Southern Cross.
There have been many space missions to the moon but recently people have not been as interested in flying there. Now there is a new competition called Google Lunar X where space companies are trying to build up more interest in going into space again. Part of this competition is trying to make space travel more sustainable for the future.
Back To The Moon For Good is a video related to the Google Lunar X Prize.
Here is a video link that teaches more about this mission……
