Hi, my name is Alessia and this week I’m in charge of Blog Buddies. I have decided to award Riccarton Primary School for their post “Kahikatea Canterbury Museum Visit 2017”. make sure you take a look and post a comment on their blog.
In InquiRE we have been learning about ways we can walk in Jesus’ footsteps. We helped our community by doing Doncare and we would like to help the world. We want to help the children in Vanuatu.
We would like to raise money for these children and we will be running a sweet treat shop. A sweet treat shop is a shop where the preps will sell yummy sweets. Here are some photos of us making our poster for around the school.
Keep watching the blog for more posts with information about this sweet treat shop!!
This week, for our ICT lesson with Mr Cotela, we used the NEW chrome books for the first time. We learnt how to log on with our own username and password.
We learnt how to open up a new page in a Word document and save it to work on later!
Learning how to change the font characters, size of the writing and colour was amazing!!!!
1/2KC can’t wait to learn more next time!!!
Three year 4 girls have formed a little Book Club reading The Happiest Refugee by Anh Do. “The extraordinary true story of a boy’s journey from starvation at sea to becoming one of Australia’s best – loved comedians.” We talk about what is happening and how we are enjoying it. We laugh at the funny bits together!
Hi, I’m David and I’m going to tell you my book of the week.
The book that I have chosen is, “Deltora Quest: The Lake of Tears“. This book is about “Lief” who is a 16-year-old boy. His home town is a place called Del. He makes a pledge to his father Endon to find ᐧthe lost 7 gems for the belt of Deltora. Lief has already found the first with the help of his allies Barda and Jasmine. But they have to find 6 more gems. Lief, Barda and Jasmine think that the second gem is at The Lake Of Tears, but this is in a land that an evil witch called Theagan rules with her children Jin and Jod. Theagan and her monsters guard the land so Lief, Barda and Jasmine have to be very careful and watch out for danger so they do not fail the mission.
I would recommend this book to girls and boys because this book has lots of wacky and weird characters.
Year 5/6 have been busily working on their latest homework assignment; creating a Book Bag. The children chose a favourite book to share with the class and completed a series of activities. Here are Portia and Sarina with their Book Bags. Both girls included a range of outstanding props to explain their text.
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.
In 5/6 we have been learning about light, and all the ways light travels, bends and is reflected.
Today we learnt about white light. White light is made up of all the colours of the rainbow red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. When white light hits a certain object the light is split up into all of its colours and is what we see as a rainbow.
We decided to try it our self’s. We used a mirror, white paper, and a jug filed with water.
Here are some of our rainbows.
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?
