Fascinating Angles

We have been learning how to recognise and measure angles.  To help use find right angles we invented our own tools then tested them out.  It was really fascinating.

Mini Camp

Rain, wind, tent city (inside) pikelets, and sausage sizzle.  What more could one ask for!  That is what we got last Friday for the Year 1 to 3 mini camp.  We had the best time ever regardless of what the weather threw at us.

Dads Day

Last Friday we had the privilege of having our dads and some of  our family members share the morning with us.  We had so much fun!!  In Year 3 we did a tech challenge that involved us being split into two teams.  The challenge was from BP Challenges called 'Getting the message across'.  We were given the scenario: some friends are trapped on the other side of a wall and across a deep ditch.  They are behind a locked gate and do not have the combination to undo the lock.
One team had to write a message with the combination, put it in a container and make the throwing device using rubber band power.  The other team (at the same time) had to use the supplied equipment to make a retrieval device to collect the message container once over the wall.
Both teams were separated and not allowed to communicate.
Have a look at the photos below to see how we got on.

PE

In PE the children have been learning to work as a team with various team challenges.  This week the challenge was get the hula hoops around the circle one clockwise the other anticlockwise without letting go of hands.  Some of the learning was how to communicate positively and not to get frustrated with people.  We did a great job.
