Treasures found as students read up
Find Your Treasure
The students and staff celebrated Book Week with a focus around this year’s theme ‘Find Your Treasure’.
They all enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book character and participating in activities around books.
The students did cooking activities such as ‘cat in the hat’ cookies and ‘the very hungry caterpillar’ sandwiches.
We even had a special visit from local author DJ Graving, who read her book The Muddle on McFuddle’s Farm.
Day for Daniel
Every year, the students participate in Day for Daniel.
On Friday, October 26, the students wore red to raise awareness around child safety.
Senior Constable Brad Cowell, our school Adopt-A-Cop, ran activities around the three key messages from the Daniel Morcombe Child Safety Curriculum: Recognise, React and Report.
The students discussed the importance of staying safe and what they could do if they were in an unsafe situation.
Over the past few weeks, the students have been using ‘Sphero’ balls to learn programming and coding skills.
The students have been making the Spheros dance and they have been navigating paths for the robot to follow.
On November 27, some of the residents from Wahroonga Retirement Village visited the school to do some Christmas activities.
The students served them morning tea, sang songs to them and gave them Christmas gifts to take back to all the residents of Wahroonga.
All students created and practised an African drumming performance as part of the music curriculum earlier in the year.
Our school was excited to learn the skills and techniques used to play the drums, while having fun exploring all of the different sounds they could create.
African drumming promoted physical co-ordination, cognitive functions of the brain, teamwork skills, creativity and cultural awareness.
