Stage 3 students spent a morning in the sun racing their solar powered cars last week.
The cars were constructed during sessions with Ms Dongas and provided some very practical and hands on learning about energy. As you can see from the photos everyone was focussed on making their car move!
After a late start and some technical issues, we are finally registered for the 2012 Premier’s Reading Challenge. This is not a competition but the chance for your child to challenge themselves to read a number of exciting and interesting books.
Students choose a minimum number of books to read from the appropriate PRC list and five of their own personal choice books, which are recorded as read on the Child’s Personal Reading Log.
To experience a book, a child can listen to the book, participate in shared reading or read part or all of the book independently.
Students in each grade have to meet the following reading goals:
Number of books needed to complete the Challenge
Minimum number of PRC books for your Challenge
Maximum number of personal choice books
PRC booklist selection
K-2 , 3-4 , 5-6 , 7-9
3-4 , 5-6 , 7-9
5-6 , 7-9
I would encourage all students to participate in this wonderful learning experience, as we will be working as a team to achieve their reading goals!
