Week 4 - Maths Night

Last week we held our annual Maths Night at Hay Park. All of our families are invited along to come and learning about what we are learning in maths at school. We also teach our families a game we can take home and play.

Families, if you missed the evening this is the presentation Mrs Rai put together. It might be helpful for you and your children.

This year we had an awesome turnout despite the horrible weather!

Sariah shared with us how she solves maths problems. 

Lot's of families ready to hear about their child's learning

Everyone engaged in the Kahoot Quiz!

Week 4 - New arrival at Hay Park

Over the weekend we have had a new arrival at Hay Park... do you know what this is?

It's a 3D printer!

The students in Setoga Class were really keen to see what was happening

Here it is done, and its first creation was... a message saying hi!  
I can't wait to see what awesome things we can design and print. Have you ever used a 3D printer?

Week 3 - Swingball

We have recently got some new balls for our swing ball sets. As the sports monitors and peer mediators we went outside to learn how to play, so we can help teach the other students.

We are loving having swing ball up and going again. It's such a great game!

Jayzel & Ayush have a go, while others wait in line.

Week 2 - Word Wheel

In Scott Class we are working hard to expand our vocabulary. Today we talked about some of the new words we have been finding in books we are reading. Then we chose 3 words to go on our word wheel (eerie, gulped and mutate) and worked either by ourselves or in pairs to come up with a sentence (or paragraph) using those words. Here are a couple that we came up with.

I gulped down the special serum in the eerie room called
"The room of darkness". It will give me a mutation that will give me the ability to see in the dark to help me finish the puzzle.  - Nikolai

My Group: Hulita, Lorna and Osana
My group writing: I gulped as I walked into the eerie room and just  as I thought nothing could get worse I saw a tiny mouse mutate into a hairy fat ugly beast.

Week 1 - Healthy Habits

This week we have been learning about different ways we can help to keep ourselves healthy. On Friday we had Grace our Public Health Nurse visit and remind us of how to wash our hands properly and how to blow our noses. Did you know you should blow your nose at least 5 times a day!
Grace had special germ lotion that we put on our hands and then looked at under a black-light to see where the germs like to hide. Then we practised washing our hands and had another look to check that we had got rid of all the germs.

Grace helped us look for the germs on our hands using a special light 

Can you see the germs glowing?

We also did some research of our own into healthy habits and then shared these. Here are some photos of us sharing our learning.

importance of wearing clean clothes.

what happens if we don't brush our teeth!
