Teacher Shake

We made our Glenview Shake video a couple of weeks ago. A couple of us wanted to make a Harlem shake with our teachers. So we went to Mr Mangan and asked him if he would lead the dancing. He said he would if ALL the teachers would do it.
Me and Ethan wrote an email to all the teachers and Mr F sent it to them. Eventually everybody agreed to do it, even Mrs Thorburn who has a sore foot.
So this morning, after assembly, teachers did the Harlem Shake. Thank you teachers for goofing around in front of all the kids and some parents were watching too.

This is the Glenview school staff doing the Harlem Shake.
If you did not know it is our Principal at the start.

Glenview Shake

In assembly last Friday Room 16 showed the whole school how they had been doing the Harlem Shake for fitness. We were so impressed that we decided to do a Glenview Shake of our own.

Later we got a message on twitter that Room 5 at Melville Intermediate had seen our Shake and wanted to reply. The made their own Shake video. You can see our video on the whiteboard in the background.
You can see it here on their blog.
What about you? Have you made a Harlem Shake video? Share it with us in the comments.

Swimming Sports

On Wednesday the year 4, 5 and 6 students went to school swimming sports at the Municipal pools on Victoria St. It might be the last time we go because the pools might be closing. People have organized a petition to stop the closing, but we don’t know what will happen.

We all had a great time, the weather was perfect and everybody had a swim. The winners of the races are going to the Interschool Swimming competition on Monday to race against other schools.

Nature by Numbers

Awesome geometry, Fibonacci and Golden Sections in nature.

We have been exploring 2D and 3D shapes in Room 11. We also looked at the patterns in numbers and times tables; and found the Fibonacci sequence. This video shows how some of the shapes and numbers appear in nature.
