We were extremely lucky to have Mrs Horan teaching us during Week 1 while Mrs Knyvett was away. Throughout the week we worked in groups to complete the Survivor Shake-Out Challenge. From working through the challenges we have strengthened our team work skills, and thought creatively to problem solve.
(Keep checking back in over the next few days to see excerpts from our work and the final team standings.)
Things to note this term:Cross-Country
Stanley Avenue School Cross-Country is in Week 4. To help prepare for the event and increase our fitness we are training around the cross-country track (around the Wetlands) every Tuesday and Thursday. It has been fantastic to see the effort everyone has been putting in, and to most students remembering their change of clothes and running shoes.
Winter Olympics Lunches
This week the Winter Olympics Team are selling hot Chicken rolls for $2.50. Please support the team and get your orders in by Wednesday. It is important that orders are in by Wednesday as Mrs Hayes needs to buy the ingredients on Wednesday afternoon.
The School Speech Finals are set to be held during Week 8 of this term. All Year 6-8 students are required to write and preform their speech to their class, where the top speeches will be selected to represent their class at the School Speech Final.
During the past week we have been looking at Informative and Persuasive Speeches and the important components of each. We have brainstormed a list of topics that interest us and have begun planning our speeches. Over the next few weeks we will be busy writing, editing and rehearsing our speeches.
Year 6 speeches must be between 2-3 minutes and Year 7/8 speeches must be between 3-4 minutes.
Please make sure that you have received a notice home recently about what to expect during Week 6 with Stanley and Winter Olympics. If you have any questions please contact Mrs Knyvett.
