Last Wednesday the annual Atwell Kindy Fun Sports Carnival proved once again to be a popular event. The day began with the children marching out in teams to be greeted enthusiastically by the spectator families. The Kindy children participated in The Bear Hunt Obstacle Course, The Humpty Dumpty Egg and Spoon Relay, The Kindy Cup Horse Race and the Gingerbread Man Running Races. The Kindy parents also got into the spirit of the day by running in the energetic and very competitive Roll Out the Barrel Relays.
Our Deputy, Mr Jones once again did an excellent job announcing the events and our Principal Mr Doherty made his debut at Kindy Sports Day as our official starter. Claire Zappa and Shayne, our school chaplain helped out with tricky situations on the track or in the bays . The very capable Year 6 Faction Captains found their inner Kindy child and joined in the races whenever they had the chance. All this coupled with a glorious spring day made it an enjoyable and memorable event for everyone.
This term the Year two students have been exploring and investigating the effects of mixing materials together.
We learned about materials that don’t mix well and others that are difficult to separate. Through hands-on investigations, students explored how changing the quantities of materials in a mixture can change its properties and uses.
We also learned about acrostic poems. We wrote our names vertically down the side of a page. These letters are used to begin each line of the poem to describe ourselves. We then creatively drew and decorated ourselves.
We hope you love our awesome work!
The Artnet Expo at Atwell College was once again, a great success this year. The annual event, in partnership with Atwell Primary School, Aubin Grove PS, Beeliar PS, Hammond Park PS, Harmony PS, Jandakot PS, Success PS and Fremantle Language Centre experienced a huge turnout of students and their families.
This year’s ArtNet Expo was given the theme of ‘Art Now,’ focusing on the work of contemporary artists, sustainability, technology and much more. Take a look at the spectacular art produced by our students at Atwell Primary School!
This year the Kindy classes each chose a book to study in the lead up to Book Week. At school, the children were engaged in various creative activities linked to their book, including decorating a door to illustrate the text. The children, dressed as characters from their book, paraded on the bike track and went to different areas of the school to show off their costumes to their peers and teachers. A great day was had by all. The Kindy Team would like to thank our families for their efforts to create such a range of delightful costumes. The children looked amazing.
On the 6th of September I went to hear the Atwell Band ably led by our brass teacher Betty Young at Churchlands Concert Hall, as part of the ABODA Band Festival held on the weekend of the 8th and 9th of September. The band is made up of instrumental students from the CCEN network. The students played three pieces magnificently then one of the adjudicators workshopped the band.
We are so very lucky to have such dedicated and talented teachers working in our instrumental program. Our Atwell students were well represented and really worked brilliantly as part of the band.
Congratulations to all students for their hard work over the year and a big thank you to the parents and families who support them.
Father’s Day in Pre-primary
Today in Pre-primary we celebrated our wonderful dads! The students invited their dad’s for a sausage sizzle breakfast and a morning of outdoor games and fun.
The dads were then surprised with Father’s Day artwork, handmade gifts and some funny stories all about their dads.
We wish to thank all of our lovely dads for joining us today and we hope you have a fun and relaxing day on Sunday.
The Pre-primary Team would also like to thank Ryan’s Meats for their great deal on the yummy sausages.
