Cubetto


Cubetto is a wooden Robot in the shape of a cube, that the children construct a code for, in order to program it. Children use tiles positioned on a board that instructs the robot to move over and along a mat to numerous interesting destinations. Thanks to Mrs Michael's who assisted the children with using this new mat recently introduced.  


Pirate Hats with our Buddies








Room 24 enjoyed another paper folding activity that was made into a Pirate Hat finished off with a skull and crossbones. Great team work Room 24 and Room19!

Pink Shirt Day





On Friday May 18th it was Pink Shirt Day. Children were able to wear pink to help celebrate this event that promoted kindness. We watched "Oat the Goat" on You Tube- a powerful and wonderful digital story that encourages kindness which resulted in making new friends.

Coding using the Osmos



This week with assistance from our lovely parents, we all got started with Osmo Coding for the first time this year. The challenge is to guide Awbie ( a playful character) who loves eating strawberries on a tree shaking, strawberry- munching adventure by giving him commands using the coding blocks. Such fun!!

Project Jonah






Project Jonah came to school and told us really interesting facts and information about whales. With Room 19 we made origami whales. It was challenging making the folds and following the instructions, but we did it! Valentina is looking extra happy because it was her birthday today which she also shares with Mrs Dijkstra.

Walking School Bus



This week has seen a special focus on walking to school. A number of our class are part of the Walking School Bus and regularly walk to school. Mrs Dijkstra remembered to take some photos of some of the events. Here we are with our Funky Feet and Super Heroes outfits.
Thanks to all the children who were able to participate and for the Mum's and Dad's who helped organise the various costumes. Well done! It was a fun thing to do and so good for the Environment!
