National eSmart Week concludes today. Here is the Digital Display that we made to show how we at St Charles Borromeo are eSmart. Thanks to the students and teachers that contributed to the display and a BIG thank you to Fabian (our ICT Captain) who coordinated this.
There was a BIG turn out from the Year 3/4s to Fabian’s lunch time activity today.
On Friday, Fabian will be inviting the Preps to Year 2 to come and play Google’s Interland.
As part of “National eSmart Week”, St Charles Borromeo has teamed up with 5 other schools to share what our top cyber safety tips are.
Here are the first two videos that have been shared.
I have just received notice from Australia Post that Milo and Korina have touched down in Buenos Aires in Argentina.
Let the adventures begin!
Do you have any messages for the adventurous two?
The Year 1/2s have been busy programming using a visual programming tool called Scratch Jnr. Here is Lily from 1/2IC showing how she created a program where animals race across a field.
A Year 2/3 class from Glenbrook Elementary School from Wisconsin (USA) has asked whether we can help with their inquiry unit they are doing on ‘communities’. They have shared a slide with us (and around 100 other schools) and have asked whether we can show them what our community looks like.
Alexis, Ariella and Hannah (3/4CA) will contribute a slide for our school very soon.
Do you have any suggestions on what the girls could include on the slide?
Here is a video that some of our Year 5/6s made for our Argentinian buddies at Colegio Newlands. Thanks to Fabian, Elena, Olivia, Greta and Lewis for giving up their lunch time to make this.
Year 1/2 KC created videos for our Argentinian friends. They shared what their favourite native animal are.

Project with Colegio Newlands (Argentina)
The students in 1/2KC and 1/2IC are going to begin working on an exciting project with the Year 1 boys and girls from Colegio Newlands (Argentina). They are really keen to share with us the animals that are native to Argentina and to learn about the native animals from here.
Here is Anabella sharing information about her favourite animal.
Remember that in Argentina they speak Spanish. So these boys and girls are doing a fantastic job to communicate to us in our language.
Today, Allegra (3/4BM) has a program to share with you. It is called “Can You Find the Fish“. Instead of Scratch, Allegra has used Google Slides to make this game. Let Allegra know what you think of her game in the comments section.
Programmers Club is on every Tuesday at lunch in 5/6 SC’s room.
Over 20 boys and girls turned up to Programmers Club today. Here is a programme that Hannah (3/4CA) made. It’s called “Get the Key”. Move the left/right button and try to capture the key. BUT, don’t get caught by one of the dragons.
Don’t forget to leave a comment and let Hannah know what you think of her game.
Click and discover what their country is like.
This week we have two students from Programmers Club sharing their programs. David (5.6M) has made a car game. Click on the green flag and use the arrow keys to move. Lucas S (5/6SC) has made a game too. Try and move the small taco so that it touches the big taco using the arrow keys.
Programmers Club meets every Tuesday at lunch. It is open to all year 3s to 6s. Here is a program created by Alex (3/4BM). He has programmed the person to dance to the music. Click on the green flag to begin.
Tomorrow, a group of our Year 5/6s will begin playing “Mystery Location” against a mystery school located somewhere in the world.
The students from both schools will ask each other yes/no questions until they can solve which country the other school is located in.
Keep visiting the blog and we will keep you updated on how the game is progressing.
Do you want to have a guess where the other country is located? Let us know in the comments section.
