1/2 Level Cyber Safety Sessions

In the 1/2 Level, we have been learning about cyber safety.      

We learnt about keeping our personal information private. This means never let anyone know information that identifies them like: where they live, school name, address, full name, sports clubs, parents’ and siblings’ full names.

We also spoke about being safe when talking to online friends to keep and protect our personal information and never meet an online friend without taking a parent or carer along.

We also looked at a game called ‘Pick Your Friends’ on the computer which gives students a chance to identify whether the characters in the game are telling the truth or a lie about themselves, in knowing how to identify a true friend and being safe!

You can have a go at the game, by logging on to the following link!   https://www.esafety.gov.au/access/games_index.html

Camp Day 3

Hi, my name is Keira and I’m doing the final report from camp.  I had a great time. My favourite part was when I jumped off the Leap of Faith 12m high. I also liked pulling the string that releases you on the Giant Swing.

Now we have one more game to play and lunch. Then we all jump on the bus and head back home.

See you all later today!

Being a disciple of Jesus

In Prep both classes have been exploring ways we can be more like a disciple. We made ourselves into a disciple and responded to the sentence ‘I can be more like a disciple by…’ 

Here are some photos of an action that we can do now to be more like a disciple. 

 How can you be more like a disciple?

Under The Love Umbrella by Prep

The Preps have read and responded creatively to a new book in our library called Under The Love Umbrella  by Davina Bell. The message of the book is that even when things are not going so well, we are always under someone’s love umbrella. There were also umbrellas to search for on each page.

The last umbrella in the book was in the sky, made from fireworks and that page inspired our art piece. Fluorescent oil pastels were used to draw the lines and then washed over with black paint. The Preps then created the people they have under their love umbrellas. Who is under your love umbrella?

You might like to borrow this book from the library to read with your family.

 

Camp – Day 1

This was the first meal we had for our camp! It was very exciting to come together as a year level after a big day. We did many exciting things today such as visiting the Enchanted Maze and doing archery at camp. The best activity I did today was the Leap of Faith! Now we are going on a bush walk! Good night.

Basketball Tournament

The SRC are going to create a basketball tournament for Years 1 to year 6. (We may also add Preps if they are interested!) The basketball tournament will be mixed teams, held at lunchtimes and games will be held for Year Levels. E.g. 1’s and 2’s, 3’s and 4’s, and 5’s and 6’s. We are going to try and start this as soon as possible.

Hi, I’m Greta and I’m this week’s Book of the Week blogger.

I’ve chosen the Ruby Redfort series.

This is the first book, I’ve read it and it’s great if you love adventure and secret agent spy things like me.

I am now up to reading the fourth one. 

Here are some other books in the series:
