Introducing Hour Of Code

The week before last Mr Armstrong worked with Room 24 introducing them to the website
"Hour of Code" which has an i pad app version. Mrs Dijkstra hopes to use this program as a component of Tinker-time. It requires the children to problem solve and write instructions. We began with a Minecraft theme and later on children can opt for Moana or Star Wars version. This learning builds upon the coding we do with the Osmo Kits and will prepare the class for working with "Scratch" as they progress through the school. James was on hand if  Mr Armstrong had any queries.

Many children in Room 24 have learned to use the circuits to make different sound effects, like an ambulance, a fire engine, a machine gun and a vibration. It was fun but it gave Mrs Dijkstra a big headache.

Making Shapes

As part of our Maths we were given two squares. We folded them in half and then halved the half to make quarters. We ended up with four triangles and four squares. We followed the instructions to use these to make different  shapes. Here James has made a large square.

Buddhist Temple Visit

Last Tuesday the Junior School visited the Buddhist Temple. We made lotus flowers and learned about the 3G's and 4G's. We were each given a gift - a bell, which was a special end to a wonderful day.

Anzac Baking

This week Room 24 have been learning about Anzac Day. We talked about when it is, what the letters stand for and what we would expect to hear, see and do at an Anzac Service. We made poppies and Mr Armstrong very kindly made delicious Anzac biscuits with us today. Mrs Dijkstra hopes that these activities will help us to reflect and remember.

Enviro Week Part 2

                                                             Caleb, Ayyan, Drake
                                                                Aayush, James, Max
We used paint splatter to cover our letter.
As part of Enviro week we each made a Pom Pom with the help of Mrs McGowan. This will eventually decorate a tree on Tree Island, as we are YARN BOMBING.

Each class was given a letter to paint, we covered ours with Paint Splatter. We thought it looked cool!
It will eventually go on a fence and spell out a school wide message. Watch this space over the next few weeks!
