Cyber Safety... it's important!

Late last term we held a fantastic Cyber Safety Presentation along with ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority).  The night highlighted how to manage the risks associated with living in the digital age and broadening our knowledge of websites and apps that are commonly being used socially, including games, and social platforms.


This week we have started exploring poetry during our writing lessons.  We have learnt that there are lots of different forms of poetry and are looking forward to exploring them over the next few weeks.  We have only just started, but already are feeling proud of the work we are doing and wanted to share some Onomatopoeic Poems with you, so please read on...

Mamma Mia! It's Fraction Time!

This week we gave the classroom the flick and headed to the Masterchef Kitchen for our maths lessons!  With chefs hats at the ready we were looking the part and set to explore the use of fractions in the pizza world.
First we had to plan our pizza.  What would we put on it? What would we call it? And what fractions would we use? And equally as important, how good do I look in my chefs hat?

Exploring Patterns In Aboriginal Art

This week we will be exploring the use of patterns in aboriginal artwork.  Aboriginal artwork uses symbols and patterns to tell a story. Have a look at the collection below and see what patterns you can find. What story do you think is being told?

Please leave a comment with your discoveries, and the picture number you are talking about.

Whole School Performance

Last week our whole school was lucky enough to have an artist in residence to teach us all about dance, family, culture and much much more! Bernard brought with him many cultural dances and equipment so everyone could learn something new and also challenge themselves.

The grand finale on Friday night was our whole school performance held at the High School which had a fantastic turn out and even got a few parents up on stage to show their moves (encore please!)
