Jollybops are coming!!

Sandy Beach Public School will be hosting Jollybops on August 3rd.
"Our aim is to bring science alive for students through exciting, stimulating and interactive shows. "

Balloon Science- for K-2 (50 minutes)

Students will see many fantastic scientific demonstrations that seem like magic but really are science. These include exploding hydrogen balloons, spooky fog (dry ice) balloon helicopters that fly to the roof and back, liquids that mysteriously change colour(chemical reactions) students dance and jump to science songs and laugh at the jokes of Rusty the Robotic Clown and see juggling and unicycling, all in the one great show. Concepts covered include Hot and Cold, Forces, Energy, Introductions to Solids, Liquids and Gases and Scientific Terminology

What the? Science or Magic - for 3-6 (1 Hour)

In a humorous and most dynamic manner, students will watch a myriad of scientific demonstrations that will seem to them to be Magic but will indeed be science. The children will be introduced to a series of scientific concepts including properties of gases, force, air pressure, gravity and its relationship to properties of materials, temperature and energy. Rusty the Robot and the JollyWizard use juggling, magic, comic pantomime, unicycling to keep the kids in total awe, thinking, sitting and laughing on the edge of their seats.

Jurassic Park Bookfair was enormous!!

Jurassic Park Bookfair was enormous!! on PhotoPeach

The process of creating a winning Jurassic creature.

The making of Ankylosaurus

First, we made a frame from chicken wire.
We tied it together with wire and string.
The spikes are seed planter punnets tied on with string.
Next, we used newspaper and flour glue to paper mache the whole body.
Finally, we painted our Ankylosaurus, glued on the eyes and the felt tongue.

2009 Jurassic Park Bookfair a huge success!!!

What a gigantic result!

We sold almost $6000 worth of books.
The Woolgoolga Lions Club donated over $200 towards even more new books for our students.
A big thank you to all the people young and old, who supported our Bookfair!
Hundreds of great new books now

We sold enough books to receive over $2000 worth of new books for future reading. Students will be able to borrow many of these great books from the library over the coming terms and years. Just think how many more new books are now in our community inspiring and engaging our kids!!!

All Jurassic creatures are now available to be picked up from the library.

Anyone waiting on re-orders-they won’t be long as I was assured that they were sent from Sydney yesterday. They will be delivered to the students as soon as possible after we receive them.

Remember: Kids’ who read, succeed!
