This is a video that the students have made to thank everyone for all they have done to help them during remote learning time. Thank you to all staff and parents for their support and help during this difficult time.
It has been a pleasure to see all of the students smiling faces again and it was great to see their enthusiasm in helping to put this video together.
This term we have been doing online assemblies because of COVID-19. Each fortnight Mr Downie records the assembly in his office and then places this onto the school blog for all to see.
Lately, The School Captains (Aiden, Sienna, Joshua and Jessica) have helped with online assemblies by reading out some of the student of the week awards which we have enjoyed doing.
Today’s online assembly is scheduled to take place at 2.30 pm on the school blog.
Since we have all come back from online schooling the Year 5’s have been participating in DFL (which stands for Dice Football League). At the start we were all randomly given our own football team but it was not the football team that we barrack for. To play the game were each given two different coloured die and we had to choose one dice to be the goals and one to be the behinds. At the moment the Demons (me) are on top after we defeated the Swans in a classic. We are looking forward to continuing the DFL next term.
Here is the current ladder positions in our class.
This term the students in Prep have been learning lots of new skills both during home learning and since they have been back at school.
Some of the areas that the Preps have been learning about since returning to school include …..
Literacy – writing recounts. The Preps were using bubbles when they were writing recounts and it looked like a lot of fun. They have also been learning how to write their work on dotted lines. Here are some pictures of the Preps hard at work …..
In Maths, Prep Yellow have been learning how to order numbers both from smallest to largest and largest to smallest. One of the activities they did for Maths included looking through LEGO catalogs and ordering the items from the ones they wanted the most through to the one they wanted the least.
Here are some pictures of this activity …..
Overall, I think the Preps have had a great job with their learning and have earned a nice long break over the school holidays.
We look forward to hearing about what the Preps will learn about next term.
The Grade 6 Digitech leaders leaders have some exciting news for students in Year 2 and 3.
We will be helping to run a Minecraft Club for students in Grade 2s and 3s (who haven’t participated before). We have been working hard in lunchtime sessions to help set things up and I am sure the students who participate in these sessions will learn lots of new skills as well as having a lot of fun.
Information for our new Minecraft club will be sent out in a letter shortly after the holidays.
We had a great week in Garden Club.
Thank goodness Mrs Clarke came to help because we had a lot of children come.
Thank you children for being involved in our growing of flowers, fruits & vegetables.
We planted potatoes and flowers in the wheelbarrow.
We picked two buckets of mandarins and the last of the cauliflowers.
This week in the art room we went back in time and worked on practising the paper folding skills we had begun before COVD19.
The aim was to use these skills to design and created a 3D bird using 2D paper. The brief was to create a bird that could stand, sit or be hung.
I am so proud of the way they approached design problems and persisted to create these awesome birds. They were very proud of themselves too.
Congratulations to everyone who participated in the VIRTUAL WHEELS AROUND VICTORIA FAMILY CHALLENGE.
Those who participated rode a total distance of 471.94kms which is almost equivalent to riding from Knox to the New South Wales border near Mallacoota.
Awesome effort everyone, stay active and enjoy the beautiful weather.
It was so great seeing everyone’s smiling faces yesterday and hearing laugher in the playground again!
During our remote learning it was wonderful to see students participating in the Italian home challenges and the singing and dancing activities. Here is a video with a few highlights of the home learning that students participated in.
WELL DONE EVERYONE! FANTASTICO!!!
Such happy days in the art room. These little artists were challenged while learning paper construction skills. They persisted and helped each other. Such a lot of learning happens when we create. They were so proud of their work and I was so proud of them all. Can’t wait to see what they make next. Yay to being back at school with all our lovely art materials.
