This term we are very excited to introduce a new Tinkertime unit. Tinkertime will be integrated with Geography and History. Students will be looking at all different types of technology and how it has changed over time.

Students will be extending their coding skills to program Ozobots. We have had a practice trying to code the little bots to change their speed. Using different colours, students colour three or four elements of a code for the Ozobot to read. These codes tell the Ozobots to go certain speeds, such as turbo, cruise or snail dose or perform certain actions like spinning or turning left and right. The kids are having a great time learning the different codes and seeing the bots in action. 

During History, we will be looking at how technology has changed over time. We brainstormed together about what technology is and the different categories certain items belong to. We will be starting a little class museum if you have any different types of technology we could borrow such as old mobile phones, music devises, tapes or even a typewriter.

During Geography we will be looking at different types of maps. Students will learn how to read and create maps. We will be using the Ozobots to create a 3D map and coding the Ozobots to move around the map to get to a desired location. 

We are very excited to see what the kids come up with. If you have any recyclable material at home or anything you can contribute to our classroom museum we would be very appreciative. Thomas has bought in a game console and Esha has shared some cassette tapes with us to keep in our museum.

Changes in Technology

This term during History, Stage 1 are investigating and learning about the changes in technology over time. If you have any examples of this at home and wouldn't mind us having a look at it, can you please send it in labelled so we can add it to our class museum. 

Anything at all that you think may be relevant. Such as old telephones, old mobile phones, old game consoles, walkmans, discmans and game boys. If you have any of these at home we would love to have a look and explore how they were used. 

It would be great for the kids to see what one of the original computers look like, such a shame we threw ours out :-)

Term 3 week 1 Friday Awards

Congratulations Cruz, Thomas and Esha for a fantastic start to the term and receiving your awards this morning!

Straight back to it!

Welcome back to school! I am looking forward to another wonderful term with the amazing 1/2F. We have a huge term planned so make sure you keep up to date with all the notes on the app.

We have an athletics afternoon, an excursion and book week just to name a few events. 

This term Stage 1 are participating in an integrated unit all about technology. We have thrown Geography, History and Tinkertime all together. 1/2F have already had a fun session learning a bit more about the Ozobots. Stay tuned for more updates :-)

1/2F will also be featured in next weeks MACC CHAT!

Have a look at some pics of the kids testing some codes for the Ozobots!

Week 10 Award winners

What a wonderful term we have had. I love Friday assemblies and celebrating the achievements of our students. 

Congratulations Christian, Nash and Brooke for receiving your awards today. What a great way to end the term.
