This term we learnt all about volume and capacity. We explored measuring capacity and volume accurately using the correct units of measurement. The students were given a task to create a milk container that would hold 3 litres of milk but still fit inside the staffroom fridge door. They did an excellent job and really demonstrated their understanding of the connection between capacity and volume.
Students have been given the option to take part in a one day interschool sport of T-20 cricket against other schools in the Moreland district. Notes have been sent home. It is hoped that they are returned by tomorrow to give enough time to ensure we have enough teams. The official QKR close date is Tuesday.
Grde 5/6s have been studying poetry this term. An exciting opportunity has come up for students to enter a competition, where they submit a haiku on the topic of "seasons". Students have learnt all about haikus, so this is a chance for them to consolidate their skills and enter a competition. Entries close October 12 and students must have parental permission to enter.

Yesterday, our class was lucky enough to have a physicist come out to help us measure the circumference of the earth. We teamed up with a school in Cairns in order to complete our calculations.
Below are the instructions and photos of the day. A big thank you to Matthew for a very interesting session.
Our midyear Parent Teacher interviews will be held on Tuesday 26th June at the school, in room 12. Your child’s midyear report will be made available to you to read prior to this interview and then you can discuss the report with me in the interview. Please arrive at least 5mins prior to your allotted time. Notes have been sent home.
Last term the Modern Languages Teachers Association of Victoria (MLTAV) spent a day at CNPS filming our Italian program.
The film is now available on the Victorian Department of Education and Training Fuse website.
It is one of a series of films showcasing best practice language programs in Victoria.
Grazie to everyone who participated and helped out with the filming. Bravi!

Carnevale is fast approaching! It will be held on the last Friday of term. Details are on the italiano blog:
At 5pm this Wednesday 30th May, CNPS will be holding an info session for parents needing assistance to login to Compass. Eldest students were sent home with a green letter containing their family username and temporary password a couple of weeks ago.
If you haven’t yet logged into Compass for the first time, feel free to attend.
Wednesday 30th May
5pm in Room 1 in the cream building.
Bring your green letter (with login details) and your mobile device.
There’ll be laptops for you to use if you don’t have your mobile with you.
Over the last few weeks 5/6C have been participating in a range of code activities. These include some 'unplugged' coding as well as using block coding online. Today the students created their own games. See your child's website for a sample of the game.
On Tuesday and Thursday this week the grade 6 students participated in some coding activities using the school’s Ozobots. Students were asked to draw a variety of shapes and maps which had different measurements and coding requirements. At the completion of each session, students shared their strategies and different problem solving approaches.
Please find some pictures of these activities attached.
