Seeing the world through cardboard goggles

Normally, learning about rock climbing, the equipment needed and the different types of climbs can be quite boring without actually going climbing, but today..  a virtual reality teaching tool built with Google Cardboard gave us the opportunity to  climb 3000 feet up the world's most famous rock wall: Yosemite's El Capitan. Listen to how excited and amazed we were.

Here is a sneak peak of our climb... Can you image what it would it would have looked like to us in 3D?? A M A Z I N G ! ! !

Welcome Back to Term 4!

Welcome back to Term 4!

It is so good to see so many eager faces back and ready to learn.

This term for topic we are learning about sound.  We are very lucky to have a representative from Jelly Bean come in to teach us about rhythm and sound using our body and a range of different instruments.
