Week 4 Super Work

Each week we see some super work in the front office. Mrs Robertson and I enjoy seeing student work and love to celebrate these accomplishments.

This week we had some students from Mrs James’ class share their labelled drawings of some ferns which they have been looking at in Science.

Past and Present

We have begun our Past and Present unit of inquiry. To provoke our thinking we investigated items from the past. We got to touch, look and play with each item. We put on our detective hats on to decipher what each item was used for and called.

What is Interoception?

Interoception is a lesser-known sense that helps you understand and feel what’s going on inside your body. Kids who struggle with the interoceptive sense may have trouble knowing when they feel hungry, full, hot, cold or thirsty. Having trouble with this sense can also make self-regulation a challenge.

The department has released a Parent and Caregiver Handbook filled with activities you can do with your children at home. Click on the link below to download it.

Year 6/7 Isolation Survival Kits

The Year 6/7 students have been working on Isolation Survival Kits this week. Three prizes were up for grabs but learning through collaboration was the main focus (at a respectful distance of course!).

The Creativity prize went to Xander and Wyatt for their brilliant introduction of miniature toilet rolls.

The Information prize went to Reilly, Lucas and Zeke for the depth of advice they had to give.

The Presentation prize went to Sophie, Deacon and James for their attention to detail.

Well done to all the students, Mrs Liscombe and Mrs Lane for the light-hearted approach to learning during this time.

What would you put into an Isolation Survival Kit? Click on this post and comment below with your ideas. We would love to hear from you.
