Chamberlains Ford Trip




I went to Chamberlain’s Ford with Milford. We went on the bus. We went there because we needed to tidy up the place and to clean the river too. We took turns at all the activities. We did some weeding. It was hard to pull the weeds out. For the rubbish picking up we had to have a little bucket. We went at 9:30am. I really wanted to jump in the river and then I wanted to get a fishing rod. We got the bugs out of the river then we played the predator game, then we did the weeding and then rubbish picking up. It was fun and I felt happy because the birds will come back!

Fundamental Skills Games Day


This is one of the fun activities that the Year 1 and 2s did at the Fundamental Movement Spectacular at Rolleston. Using games and fun activities is a motivating way for children to develop skills for sport.

Elf Technology

The students were put into mixed groups - groups where they had to work with people who would not normally be their first choice group-mates. The goal was for them to work collaboratively. They were asked to build the tallest shelf they could for a Christmas Elf to sit on. All they had was twelve popsicle sticks and some playdough.

 An example of one of the shelves.
James and Liam hard at work.

Will it hold?...

 A good early effort. Could they build bigger?
 Nate, Vincent and Jayden had a very sold design. 31 cm!


 32 cm!




 Not sure what's going on here...



 An earlier effort from these three.
