What an amazing display of all the talented students at LPS, especially the ceramic masks created by the Year Fives. Here is a sneak peak below in case you missed out! Thanks Mrs Wheelton for all your AWESOME work!
Week two started off with some very excited students hearing all about the role of a Laburnum School Captain. The current School Captains, Steph, Grace, Brock and Josh put together a fabulous PowerPoint Presentation explaining the role of a School Captain. They delivered some excellent information to the Year Fives about what an important role a Captain plays at LPS. Next week students will be given the opportunity to write their Letter of Application at school. In the coming weeks the House Captain selection process will begin. Please see the attached ‘Advertisement’ for LPS School Captains.
Wow! Who got ‘Spaced Out’ on Thursday? All the Year Fives were ‘out of this world’ when they ‘spaced jumped’ into the planetarium! Each class was ‘blasted off into space’ as they experienced the blow up planetarium in the school hall. The fabulously informative ‘astronaut’, Nick from Starlab ‘landed’ at LPS and his presentations went off with a ‘big bang’. He had our minds ‘spinning’ with new information as we ducked and dodged exploding moons, space junk and ice. We all dove for cover as the Sun came closer and closer at a balmy 5,500⁰C. I think everyone ‘moon walked’ away with a ‘spaceship’ full of knowledge and many ‘shuttle loads’ of questions!

Friday afternoon was the first of our maths afternoons. Everyone headed outside to learn about measurement and in particular, time.
- Who could beat Usain Bolt on the athletics track?
- How far did you pilot your paper plane?
- What time was it in London, Tokyo or New York when we were eating lunch?
- Do your parents know just how old they are in seconds?
- Did you get to a whole kilometre in ‘Point of Launch’?
We will be ‘Hip Hopping’ through Tuesday as part of Health and PE week.
