Our Awesome Excursion to the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre

On Monday 26th of May 3/4 Biffin/Doran and 4 Farran travelled to the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre. It was an awesome day everyone enjoyed learning about the history of the Beaconsfield Mine. Please look through the different posts and write a recount of what you saw in an area. Your recount might be chosen to introduce that area. Remember you can write a reply in more than one area…

Arriving at the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre we were split into four groups and given an introduction to the area. The Grubb and Hart Mine buildings were impressive. We also saw the commemoration site for Larry Knight who died in the mining tragedy. We were amazed that Beaconsfield was the first place in Australia to have fluoride added to the drinking water to protect the teeth of the people who live there.

Find out more about the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre by visiting their website and make sure you check out posts for each of the areas we visited

Travel and a visit to Brady’s Lookout

Our journey took 1 hour and 20 minutes so we had  a quick stop at Brady’s Lookout. It was a fun trip with lots of singing! We ate our recess and lunch at a park just across the road from the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre.

Science Experiments

At the end of last term we worked in small groups to plan a Science Experiment. We had to think of a question and then write a hypothesis about our question. Each group then did their experiment. Some experiments took one day, others took weeks. We had to work out the results using the computer and then put together our posters.

We shared our posters with the other groups and then showed them in assembly. We were all very proud of our Scientific thinking.

What did you do for your Science Experiment?
