Summary TOO LOUDThe World Health organisation has warned more than a billion kids are at risk of hearing loss because they listen to music too loudly. The worrying trend has come about primarily due to the rise in portable music device and headphone use. But how can headphones and an mp3 player do so much damage? We travel past the eardrum and into the cochlear to find out what really happens when you crank up the volume.TEACHER RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning areas -Health and Physical Education/Personal, Social and Community Health/Being healthy, safe and activeInvestigate community resources and strategies to seek help about health, safety and wellbeing Year 5 & 6Plan and practise strategies to promote health safety and wellbeing Years 5 & 6Plan and use health practices, behaviours and resources to enhance the health, safety and wellbeing of their communities Year 7 and 8SHOW SCHOOL SAVEDAfter months of uncertainty, the federal government has announced it will continue funding the National School for Travelling Show Children. It's great news for these kids who travel the country with their parents, bringing rides and amusements to all. But what is it like to go to school on the road? We find out what's involved.COLOUR CONFUSIONIs it blue and black, or white and gold? That one simple question got millions of people fired up last week, after a picture of a dress with a debateable colour scheme went viral. But why do people perceive colour differently? And how do we see colours in the first place? We get an explanation from a kid who knows all too well, because he can't see some colours at all.ANDY GRIFFITHS WRITING LESSONSAndy Griffiths is the most popular children's author in Australia. His books have been published all over the world, despite the fact many of them are about cheeky, smelly or disgusting things.

We join them to find out how he comes up with his crazy ideas.TEACHER RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning areas -English/Literature/Examining literatureIdentify, describe, and discuss similarities and differences between texts, including those by the same author or illustrator, and evaluate characteristics that define an author's individual style Year 6Discuss how authors and illustrators make stories exciting, moving and absorbing and hold readers' interest by using various techniques, for example character development and plot tension Year 4 English/Literacy/Interpreting, analysing, evaluating Analyse strategies authors use to influence readers Year 6DOUBLE TROUBLEOne small school has found itself seeing double, with twelve sets of twins and even one set of triplets enrolled there this year.

Can they really read each other's thoughts? Or feel each other's pain?
