1/2 C love to meditate each morning. Sometimes teachers and parents think that we are the 5/6s because we are so quiet at it. If students are late they know to remain quiet so that the class can continue to meditate. Some things we do whilst meditation is closing our eyes, deep breathing and trying to clear our minds as much as possible. Here is our class in action ……
Today, the students in the 3/4 Level explored the world of robotics through learning to use our new Ozobots. They learnt how robots have helped to make so many aspects of our lives easier and safer. The students explored how they can use different coloured codes to help tell the Ozobot what to do. Sometimes the Ozobots do what they are coded to do but other times they can be a bit like a ‘naughty student’ and not do what they are told. Nonetheless, they all learnt many new skills plus had lots of fun along the way.
Today some students in the 1/2 Level played a game called ‘Reversi’ during Maths Groups today. It involves trying to block the other player’s counters so that you could capture them as your own. It was a bit of a combination between connect four and chess. Our brains were really working throughout the session.
Here is some of us at work ……
Some statistics for you:
- We so far have 60 students who have gone online and listed books in the Premiers’ Reading Challenge student portal.
- Three magnificent readers have listed the maximum number of 100 books – a really great effort!
- 1393 books have been recorded by students so far.
It is not too late to join the Reading Challenge. If you took part last year you can start reading straight away – your card details are the same.
There are enrolment forms on the circulation desk if you would like to take part for the first time. Anyone who wants their name in the online honour roll at the end of the challenge needs to have one of these forms signed by a parent and returned to school.
Anyone who completes the challenge gets a special certificate and book mark at assembly. These fabulous readers also have the chance at winning one of 4 Book Club $25 book vouchers to use in Book Club or at our annual Book Fair in November.
In week 7 of this term we were fortunate enough to have the ‘world famous’ John Burland attend Holy Trinity to teach us some great songs. It’s easy to see how much we loved the day!!!!
Here is a link to a few videos of the day as well for you to enjoy. They are well worth a look.
Thanks to Mrs. Cascinelli & Mr. Downie for organising the day!!!
