AFL Essendon Players
The 3 visitors that visited the grade 3’s were from the Essendon AFL team. They spoke about the importance of having a heathy lifestyle. They try to always eat healthy such as vegetables. The AFL players only eat McDonald’s once a month, that’s why they get strong and play well. When they don’t eat healthy they can get injured during a game and trust me it hurts! You might not believe me but it really isn’t worth eating the bad food

On the 27th of February we went on a community walk with 3A. We went straight after lunch time, we had to grab our hats and water bottles because it was a very hot day. During our walk we observed the different types of things that are in our local community ‘Craigieburn’. We noticed houses, arcare, schools, bus stops, police, shopping centre, library, medical centre, Splash, parks, cafes and much more! We also walked by a construction site, the footpath was very narrow so we had to squeeze together. We made predictions of what the new site will consist of, some of us said gas stations, others said cafes and others said stores. Our walk took us nearly two hours, we were all very tired when we got back to school.

After our walk, we completed an activity on finding the coordinates of the different locations that are in our community, it was very fun!
On the 9th of March we used Ozobots to locate the different places on our birds eye view community map, they’re cool little robots! They sensor the colours black, green, red and blue. This is how to use them.
Step 1: Create a map with the colour codes. The codes are provided with the Ozobots. For an example to make the Ozobot speed fast use the colour code blue black blue.
Step 2: Get an Ozobot and turn it on. When it flashes that means it’s on.
Step 3: Put it the location home on your map and allow it to follow the track and colour codes you have created.
We took a video of the Ozobots and shared it with the class. It was so much fun! Remember if you want to know how to use the Ozobots just read this blog post

Dear parents and students, we had special guests visiting 3C and 3A last week. Those special guests were police officers! We asked the police officers questions about their job and the important role they have to keep our community safe
I asked how it felt to be a police officer, the police answered “It is good to be a police officer because you get to help other people and that makes me feel good” – Kiran
