Where oh where…?

As our London leg of the Cyber Race draws to a close, the question on almost everyone’s lips is ‘Where to next?’.

Well, as you know, I can’t give too much away. It may give some of you an unfair advantage.
However, because I’m such a caring teacher, I can’t resist giving you a helping hand.
Hint#1…It will be handy if you could become fluent in a language other than English. If not, a language translator will come in very handy.

Hint#2… If you can learn where this image can be found, it might steer you in the right direction. Or am I being cruel and throwing you off the scent?

Where can you find me?

Where can you find me?

Where in the world…?

Where in the world? That is the question that will be answered on Monday when we start the first leg of the NGPS Amazing Cyber Race.
Today you had the opportunity to travel to Echuca and practise some of the skills you will need for this inquiry.
Well done to Emma and Rebecca, Joseph and Angus and Jess and Georgia who finished in first, second and third place.
I’d like to know…

What was the most challenging part of this activity today and why?

What was something you learnt in relation to using websites?

How successful were you and your partner at working together?

On Monday your team heads off to a mystery location….GOOD LUCK!

And for another mystery… where will this door take you?

Prep buddy tabloid sports afternoon..Congratulations Year 6!

Never work with children or animals…apparently sound advice for some.
But look what happens when children work with children…especially when Year 6 students work with their Prep buddies.

What did you learn from this experience Grade 6?  Did you enjoy the afternoon’s activity?

Breakfast Cereals… the good, the bad and the ugly

Given that breakfast is meant to fuel our bodies with energy needed to kick start our day, our students have been engaged in an-ongoing investigation in relation to the nutritional value of breakfast cereals.
We began by looking into the nutrition of cereals and ranking them accordingly.

They then had to investigate cereal boxes in order to create one of their own using a number of criteria, one of which was to include 3 of the ” tricks of advertising”   

Students have been asked to explain the task in detail to mum and dad and  gather written feedback on their criteria sheet.
