Walk to School Program

This year we are very excited about our new whole school program called Walk to School Program. This program will begin in Term Two and as a whole school community we aim to get as many students and families to participate in our Walk to School Days. Once a month we have allocated a day for everyone to participate.

We have created posters for the school to promote our program, we are very excited about this.

The Grade 2’s took part in a mini video – have a look and see! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en-bncjTrQY

Aim:

  • To get as many families to walk to and from school safely.
  • To reduce school traffic during peak time.
  • To reinforce the importance of staying active and healthy.

How will the program work?

  • Once a month we will dedicate a day called ‘Walk to School Day’ and we will ask as many families to walk to and from school safely. To collate results, teacher’s will ask students who rode, walked, scooted or skated to school and add on their results onto a whole school google sheet. This could be also done during a numeracy lesson as well.
  • During assembly (for both groups) there will be a ‘Golden Shoe’ (trophy) awarded for the grade with the most participation during our allocated Walk to School Day. The class will keep the ‘Golden Shoe’ until the next Walk to School Day. (RED SHOE and BLUE SHOE)
  • Miss P to present the trophies during assembly.

Videoing to London

In 3E we have been learning about our classroom community, the communities we live in and the communities we are a part of. We have created this video to send to St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School in London, England. 3E came up with 10 questions to ask Mr Simmons’ Year 2 class to find out about how their community and our community are the same and different. We are eagerly awaiting a response!

A link to their blog is below.

Craigieburn Community

Hello everybody,

We are students from 4C and this term we have been focusing and learning about Craigieburns History. We have been discovering different types of information such as black Thursday, Cliffs-store, The Wall and the Craigieburn grassland. We found out this information on a website called ‘The Craigieburn Historical Interest group’. We have found out what happened to the Craigieburn community and how this has impacted the area. An example of some information we learnt is in 1841, James Malcom built a hut and a barn.

 

Thank you,

From 4C

3A Congratulations

In 3A we want to celebrate our class mates when they achieve good things. So we say a big CONGRATULATIONS to our classmates below for their achievements!

3A Digital LeadersThese three students have been selected as Digital Leaders. They created a digital piece of work that showcased their ability in different apps and were lucky to be selected! They will now work with Ms Spink and other Digital Leaders on projects and issues around the school, helping students and teachers with technology. Congratulations!

3A Student Awards Week 3 and 5We also say a big Well Done to our Student Award winners from the last two Assemblies – these students have been working hard and demonstrating school values in everything they do. Congratulations on being our first Student Award winners for the year!

Thanks for reading!

From 3A

 

3A Community Agreement

3A Community Agreement:

3A class agreementIn 3A we will learn new things, have fun, be friendly to each other, come to school ready to learn and discover the world. 

We will do this so we can learn, discover, share, understand and become smarter about new and different things.

Signed [Students of 3A]

In 3A, we have spent time discussing our ACPS school values and linking them to our Positive School Wide Behaviour expectations. Students have given examples of what this looks like in our room and are doing a fantastic job of modelling these behaviours in our every day learning. As a class we also talked about what we came to school for and why that was important, which helped us to write our agreement (see above).

This week we spent time talking about how we would like to showcase this agreement with our families and other people through our blog. There were some excellent ideas and we combined them together into the final product below. Here is our visual presentation of 3A’s Community Agreement:
