Shinty

We all had fun during our shinty taster sessions, and learned lots of new skills too!

 

Stand Up For Sophia

The school took part today in ‘Stand Up For Sophia’ where we all raised money for her to buy a wheelchair that allows her to stand up. Mrs Walsh is a valued member of our school team, and we wish her all the best in raising money for her daughter Sophia.

Maths Week

It has been Maths Week in school and the class have been looking for shapes in the environment, talking about how Maths is important in many jobs, playing Maths games and lots more! We also took part in a challenge and all the Maths questions solved the puzzle.

“I enjoyed Maths Week because some of the activities were challenging and I had to try hard.”

“It was fun doing the challenge in Maths Week because we had to add to the clues to find the answer.”

“I liked going outside looking for shapes in the environment because we named all different shapes.”

“I liked the playing card games as they helped me learn my basic facts.”

James and the Giant Peach

What an exciting day! We had our first Dress Down Day, and we also had a performance of James and the Giant Peach.

These are some comments the children made about the performance.

“It was great fun to watch and I really liked the songs.”

“ I liked James and the Giant Peach as it was really funny. I liked the rat too as it did silly stuff.”

“I would be encouraged to read the book after seeing the performance.”

“I liked the songs as they were songs we already knew.”

“The ladybird sang songs with funny lyrics.”

“We all enjoyed the performance of James and the Giant Peach.”

 

Roald Dahl Fun

B Block participated in some rotational learning.  Mixed classes got together to take part in activities related to the theme of Matilda and bravery.

Drumming and dancing!

Indigenous drumming and dancing

 

We were fortunate enough to take part in these sessions today. What a great time the children had!

 

“ My favourite part was the drumming because we did different rhythms and beats.”

“I enjoyed the dancing because it was different and lots of fun.”

“The drumming was different and I liked it when we put the different parts together.”

“It was the first time I had used a drum and it was a super experience.”

“The dancing was tiring but it was fun at the same time.”

“The dancing was fun because we were learning different types of moves.”

“ It was a great experience!”

Our Team Challenge

In class, we were set a team challenge to build a tower from twelve art straws. The tower also had to be less than 30cm in height. Together we planned our group design and worked together to build the tower. We looked at different design features which were more successful and those which were challenging. We all persevered though and presented our completed towers to the rest of the class. What fun we all had!
