The Waste World incursion presented by The National Theatre for Children followed Mayor Matilda who is facing a big problem – the town’s recycling plant has stopped running! It seems that Robo-Ned Jelly, leader of the Jelly Gang has sabotaged the recycling technology and is determined to waste all the resources in town! Luckily Matilda managed to re-program Robo-Ned in time to save the town.
We were fortunate enough to receive 4 Lego We-Do kits as part of the program, these are in addition to the 8 we recieved from last year’s Bee On The Team incursion. Our students love using the Lego We-Do kits to design, build and program their projects.
As part of our new responsible behaviour policy we are encouraging students to make good decisions in all areas of their school life including when using technology. A large part of this relates to cybersafety.
To help support parents and students we are hosting a Cybersafety Workshop for parents to be held in Mort Hall on 9 April starting at 7 pm.
The workshop will be presented by our ICT and Technologies Coordinator, Andrew Upfold. Andrew has a wealth of experience as a teacher, technologist and parent which he will share through interactive tasks, a presentation, videos and a question and answer session.
Topics to be covered include:
- online bullying;
- inappropriate content;
- screen time;
- cyber security; and
- social networking
This event is only for adults. Light refreshments will be available.
If you would like to attend, please use the links below to book on Eventbrite. Tickets are free, but it allows us to plan for catering.
The Adventures of English
Our friendly group are thoroughly enjoying learning about the English language. There have been several ‘Aha!’ moments and much lively discussion over words and their origin. Family history, meanings of names and stories about naming have been met with surprise, wonder and awe. We love language.
Our fantastic year 5’s and 6’s are really enjoying their time learning a wide range of problem-solving skills be it hands on, high order thinking or group work. Through group activities the students have shown fantastic communication and leadership skills. There has been plenty of adventures discovering how fun problem solving is really is.
Welcome to ACZE Minecraft class 2019. The focus of this course is to have students understand, demonstrate and explain the process of science inquiry via project-based learning. Students came together to create a meaningful and practical product each week that relates to the real world. Some examples of our activities include maze challenge, roller coaster drop and coding agent. We look forward to our next challenge.
All students are engaged, enthusiastic and very motivated. Their respective Primary Schools should be very proud of the way their students have represented them. ACZE programs are open to year 5’s and 6’s. More information will be sent out at the end of week 7 with details for term 2 courses, however any parents wanting to know more about the ACZE program, please contact Ingrid Vidot-Emery on Ingrid.email@example.com.
We have had a great start to the school year, with students settling in to their new classrooms and making the most of the fabulous weather we are having, playing on the various equipment around the school.
