Sports Day is coming soon!!!!

Sports Day is coming soon!!!!

March 29th is the Grade 1 to 5 sports day, we will begin preparing students for this during PE class over the next 3 weeks – some classes have already started.

The focus of this day is Healthy Competition.

Using the PSPE framework of Identity, Active Living, and Interactions we can explain the day like this –

§  Students will identify within their house group whilst competing in Active athletic events of entailing Running, jumping, and throwing, all the while Interacting and participating within the whole sports day.

One thing we would like to establish with all students is that whilst we can’t all be Usain Bolt we can all improve our speed by focusing on our technique. Attached to this blog post are some very broad tips for running faster – we will be exploring these more in class during the next few weeks.

This week several of the amazing teachers at our school are helping us out by sharing their passions with the Grade 5 classes. This is intended to get the students thinking about their own passions leading into the exhibition.

Writing – science experiments

Writing – science experiments

We had the first round of our science experiments last week and will be using this to finish off the writing we have started. The results were mixed with no real dramatic reactions, but it was still lots of fun!

Welcome back everybody!!!

Writing experiment – Friday this week

Writing experiment – Friday this week

Dear Parents,

We have been writing up scientific experiments and have used the idea of Coke and Mentos to start our thinking of variables. This Friday we are planning to conduct some experiments using slightly modified examples of the coke and mentos.

Please be aware that the students will not be drinking the soft drinks after the experiment.

Tonight your child will have an equipment list with the things they need to complete this experiment, we are aiming to do this activity on Friday this week.
