***Greetings from Miss Harry from the Hindmarsh training centre today. We are discussing real world problem solving and designing learning tasks around a problem and children then working through to solutions. It’s moving past Inquiry ‘topics’ and more student directed and purposeful. Our problem last term was focused around the tree that fell down. A real problem to the children. How do we solve this problem? We have designed a new play space area using the logs that we asked to be left behind! We will submit our designs to Student Leadership and Mr Luke.

Friday Gardening Lesson

Today we checked our rain gauges in the ELC. No rain! We have had a very dry start to Winter! So we watered the plants. We also moved soil to a new garden bed, found worms, raked, played and enjoyed nature! We identified weeds and pulled them out too.

What’s the Weather?

For our Inquiry we are investigating different types of weather.

Sharing Week 6 & 7:
At home, please record the weather for 1 whole week during week 6.
You could draw a simple picture/symbol each day and one word to describe eg sunny, cloudy, rainy.
What do you notice about the weather for the week? What is your favourite kind of weather?
After recording the weather for a week, come back in Week 7 with your charts, photos, drawings. You could share this and/or talk about how we measure the weather (wind vanes, kites, temperature gauges, etc. You may like to get a plastic bottle to put outside and collect the rain!
Please bring to school a plastic bottle or container if you have any spare so we can record the rainfall at Craigburn!

Swimming Week

Welcome back!
We look forward to a fun swimming week. No formal sharing this week but we look forward to hearing all about our holiday adventures.
Please refer to my swimming note for detailed information.
The water safety program is not an ability program. Students will work in mixed ability groups which has benefits: less confident students interact with more confident students, this replicates the real world eg when they are at the beach or a water park.
Students can aspire to achieve more and copy others more confidently. Peer mentoring assists both nervous and confident students’ learning outcomes.
