Week 4

Gosh! What a hot week it has been!! We have managed to find a couple of fans for the room  while we wait for the air-conditioner to be fixed so our afternoons have been a little more bearable :)

Well done to Oliver who has managed to take out the top spot for Mathletics both weeks in a row!! The homework expectation is 1000 points per week but Olly's love of Maths has helped him earn 7000 points in week 3 and 4000 points this week - A fantastic effort!!

 

Today we also attempted our first 'Group Challenge' - making a device to launch an Army Man. Students were given limited supplies and it was really interesting seeing all the different ideas that each group came up with. We will have a few more challenges throughout the year to continue encouraging students to work collaboratively and cooperatively :)



Reminders:

- We will continue to swim everyday so students will need to bring their togs each day.
- Permission forms for Sonshine Ranch are due back by Tuesday so please return these as soon as possible so that we can organise numbers for parent helpers.

Have a great weekend :)
