3/4B Term 1 Week 5 + Parent Information Night +homework docs.

The class have been working as budding artists this week, learning to sketch with pencil and then apply watercolour washes to some terrific leaf observations.

We've also finished our Sphero bridge building challenge where students had to build a 45cm bridge that allowed a Sphero robot to drive across it. The bridges were also weighed to identify the lightest and strongest construction -  there was plenty of making fun!

Please find attached the homework grid for the term, a summary of the parent information night and a list of iPad apps required for iPad users.

What a great start to the year!

Hi everyone,

I just had to write a post about how proud I am of our wonderful class. In just four weeks I have been privileged to witness some incredible collaboration, cooperation and team work. We have all been working together so well, sharing our learning and passionately approaching all activities - it’s so amazing to witness!

A quick run down of what we are covering this term:

Why Have Multi-Aged Classes?

The notion of grouping children together in classes based on age had its origins in Australia when public education first started over 150 years ago. It made sense back then because it was easiest to teach any particular age group the same thing at the same time.
