Week 7 was Literacy and Numeracy week at ACPS, filled with exciting activities like coding, Bloxels, writing, and rich maths tasks. Week 8 was eSmart week, which was also packed with activities for our students to learn about being safe online.
Literacy & Numeracy Week: Choose Your Own Adventure
This is me, Rivindu, and Adriano’s Choose Your Own Adventure story. It was a really fun time making this book but there is still more pages to come I tried to work on the book as much as I can and I hope as I continue it will succeed. – Hassan
Literacy & Numeracy Week: Maths Rich Task
Students were challenged to survey their peers on reading preferences, interpret the data and identify the right text types, then select the books from a catalogue for a new classroom library–all within the budget of $300! Finally, students created a catalogue with a summary of their chosen texts. Everyone was very immersed and came up with some great results!
eSmart Week (Week 8)
We watched videos and movies about these kids who were giving away their personal information, like one them gave away their personal information and told his friend but it was really a 37-year-old man. In other one this girl wanted to download an app called quickpick like Facebook and her friend posted a photo of her spilling water on herself and it got shared around and she got really embarrassed.
We learnt never give away personal information about yourself online—your birthday, where you live, your address. You could also get hacked.
You will kidnapped and if you give some of your personal information the people can rob your house. – Taleisha, Ryan & Eliot
On the 8th of September, Friday, we heard a sound when we came inside the classroom. It was the sound of a puppy! We all rushed into the classroom to see. The puppy was a Shetland Sheepdog. Our teacher Mrs. Hall-Bowden had owned the puppy for only a week. Its name was Pàdraig. He is so adorable. We all wrote an information report about Shetland Sheepdogs, we summarised an information report that Mrs. Hall-Bowden wrote. We all had so much fun! -Mahrosh, Riley, Tenayah
On Friday morning Mrs H.B. brought her puppy in the class and it was so cute. He was so playful. We had a lot of fun playing with him his name was Pàdraig. Everyone was taking so many photos of him. His breed is Shetland Sheepdog (Sheltie) – Jake & Anmol
