Yuille Park POD 3 Style

Yuille Park Pod 3 Style is a parody about our class using Psy’s Gangnam-Style. Thanks to Fitzy & Wippa for the inspiration of Aussie Battler Style, JibJab for the Elf Yourself moments and to the staff and students in Pod 3 at Yuille Park Community College in Ballarat.

Lyrics: Yuille Park Pod 3 Style Pod 3 Style We have teachers who work hard to help us learn Workforce placement’s great but we never earn When cooking food with Nat, it’s yum and never burned We camp at Cottage By The Sea We’ve been known to swear For bad language we get punished If we stuff up in class There’s a block we’ll go sit on it Love our dodgeball games But not when balls smack into my face Think we’re pretty tough. Please don’t use the scruff. We run assembly Sing Happy Birthdee We run the Caff YEAH We’re never naff YEAH Play sports with Grillsy Use all our energy We never cheat YEAH Quick on our feet YEAH We go hard which is why we’re rarely beat. Chorus: Yuille Park Pod 3 Style Pod 3 Style Yuille Park Pod 3 Style Pod 3 Style Yuille Park Pod 3 Style Heeeyyyy Mr Cowan Yuille Park Pod 3 Style Heeeeyyyyy Mrs Ellis Got slow netbooks, always lagging during Minecraft Need some new ones, never freezing when they’re loading Navy tracky pants with windcheater & logo. Hats, Terms 1 & 4 Mac’s armpit’s great for farts when standing behind teachers Like the Visual Arts But more a fan doing runners Free choice projects fun Though our work’s not done Do experiments Blow stuff through the vents In RACV We pedal quickly Go round the court YEAH We’re rarely caught YEAH We’re always leavin’ With class mate Stephen Off to news YEAH With Liz & Jane YEAH And you know that we’ll never misbehave. Chorus: Yuille Park Pod 3 Style Pod 3 Style Yuille Park Pod 3 Style Pod 3 Style Heeeyyyy Odd socks with Westy Yuille Park Pod 3 Style Heeeeyyyyy Wrestles with Jeffrey Yuille Park Pod 3 Style

Science – an exploration

This term the students in POD 3 have been exploring a range of scientific phenomenon. The students have been researching areas of science and have been conducting experiments to build their understandings and draw scientific conclusions.
Each student has recorded a short video of their experiment and we are looking forward to their presentations later in the term.
Check out the trailer to see what we might find out.

To catch a crook?

This term in Maths the POD 3 students are exploring Chance and Data concepts through a series of investigations.
One such investigation is know at the Grubby Pages effect. Over the next few weeks students will be investigating a theory founded in 1881 by astronomer, Simon Newcomb. Newcomb’s theory came about by some ‘grubby observations’ of log table books (for those of us older than 30 or 40, we used these at school to complete calculations before calculators were used in schools). In 1938, Frank Bedford again noticed the ‘grubby pages’ but it wasn’t until as recently as 1996 that Ted Hill, a mathematician, realised how this discovery could help detect fraud.
