Good morning! And congratulations to all for making it to the end of our first week back on site!
This week, Aitken Creek Good News has some student and staff reflections about returning to school and remote learning. And even more exciting – we filmed on site!
Please enjoy Episode 1 of ACGN 🙂
Our School Captains have been busy these school holidays and created a special holiday episode of ACGN. Scripted and filmed entirely by the School Captains during their holidays – even the editing was taken over by them!
In this episode, our Captains share what they have been up to these holidays now restrictions are slowly being lifted and the weather is getting warmer.
What have you been up to these holidays? Share with us on our blog post or school Facebook page!
See you soon for Term 4!
ACGN ends Term 3 with our 9th episode!
We include a fun video from the teachers, updates on some end of term class fun and reminders of how to stay Covid-safe over the school holidays.
Stay safe and enjoy a restful holiday break!
See you in Term 4!
Episode 7 is here!
In this episode we welcome a Rookie Reporter to ACGN, share about the Prep’s zoo excursion (yes – they went to the zoo!) and give you a sneak peek at some excitement coming up from our Specialist teachers. We hope this brings a smile to your face!
Please watch, share and enjoy!
Episode 6 shares some feedback we have received from students and teachers – we hope you feel that ACGN brightens your day as well! If it does, let us know by emailing Ms Huntly or giving your teacher a comment or video to pass onto the ACGN team. These will continue to be shared in other episodes!
We also showcase our Student Leaders who want to share some good spirits by declaring “Everything Is Awesome” and some Year 4 teachers and ES who demonstrate some very complicated dance steps!
Thanks for watching! And as always, stay safe and stay positive!

Here it is – episode 5 of ACGN!
We couldn’t let this week finish without our dose of Aitken Creek Good News.
Has Aitken Creek Good News brightened your day or week? Let us know by sending us a short selfie video or even just a written comment explaining how ACGN brightens your day or makes you feel good. We will be featuring this feedback over the next few episodes – you could be on the next ACGN!

Enjoy episode 5!

The last few weeks have been really busy with learning for us, and because of that, we wanted to share some of the amazing work 1C has gotten up to!
We have been continuing to learn about how to use procedural texts, as well as creating pictures steps of how to follow the steps for texts like ‘how to wash your hands’
We’ve been doing a lot of learning in our reading and writing about how and why we ask questions.
Today in our learning, we thought we would use what we have learnt about questions to help us check in with the people we miss from school, so here are some questions we would love to share with you:
Our learning about power has been going really well in CBL. We’ve investigated different kinds of power through lots of experiments and now we’re starting the follow the design process to look at how we can use and create something powerful!
To show you how we have been scientists and designers we wanted to share some of the awesome work that has been happening:
Srihitha’s paper windmill, showing how the wind is power:
Arya’s experiment showing chemical reactions:
Spencer’s plan showing his design process:
We hope you enjoyed seeing all the learning that we’ve been up to and look forward to showing you more of it soon!
