Glen Huon Primary sent two teams to the State-wide Robotics competition. They competed with great respect for each other and worked well together. They were great ambassadors for Glen Huon Primary. The two teams were, Yoda Best Team, Mike, Paige, Aiden J, Aidan F, Lucy, Jobi and Gabby and The Fridge Gremlins, Isaac, Elijah, Lincoln, Spencer, Philip, William, Jason and Shayden. These two teams practiced and learnt robotics throughout the year. Not all team members were able to participate on the day of the competition but were integral in the planning and programming prior to the competition.
It is interesting to walk around our classrooms and see some very interesting sculptures being created out of rubbish. The big reveal of the sculptures is on Friday 15th November in the school hall. This is a student council driven initiative aimed at raising money for another recycling bin for the school.
Our School Association meeting is being held tomorrow night at six in the staffroom. I will be discussing staffing for 2020. All welcome to attend.

This week in Smarties our sensory focus is on Mud Play! We will be having fun getting our hands dirty and learning about measurement, density, texture and imagination through glorious mud play!
On Wednesday we will be building a Mud Kitchen! We will be working with simple tools to build a work area, digging up some lovely dirt and planting some herbs and flowers to use in our mud play. Come in old clothes and bring a hat!
On Thursday we are off on our excursion to North West Bay River, meeting at the Sandlfy cricket grounds carpark at 10am. Everyone is welcome! Bring a snack to share for a lovely picnic by the water, a hat and sunblock, a drink bottle and a warm jacket in case the weather changes.
On Friday we will play with the parachute and read a story about Peppa Pig, then we'll have a play with some real mud - bring a hat as we will move outside for part of the session.
Smarties sessions are open to all children aged 0-5 and their families or carers, we hope to see you there!

In our class we are starting to learn about the measurement of time. We started our time inquiry by looking at how we could make a clock with the things in our classroom. We discussed what features a clock has and their function.
Have a look at what we created!
Here are some time jokes you might find funny!
Q: Did you hear about the hungry clock? A: It went back four seconds.
Q: At what time do most people go to the dentist? A: At tooth-hurty (2:30).
It was a very hot Athletics Carnival this year. We had to keep hydrated, wear our hats and sunscreen. All the students were very supportive of each other, they were cheering each other on in all events.
There were lots of fun, exciting activities and it was great to see that everyone was participating in the events. Towards the end we had our first ever Whole School Relay. Teal took out the relay but Maroon scored the most points on the day.
A big thanks goes to all the parents, friends and teachers who helped on the day.
