ACGN is back for Term 4!

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 🙂




ACGN Term 3 Holiday episode

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!

1D Authors write procedures

Hi everybody,

In 1D we have been working hard in reading and writing sessions to learn about procedures. Procedures are texts that teach the reader how to do something.

We read lots and lots of procedures, and we learned procedures have a title, goal, ingredients, equipment and steps. We also learned each step starts with a bossy verb and sometimes adverbs too. For example, a step could be: Cut the cucumber, and ‘cut’ is a bossy verb. It could even be Carefully cut the cucumber, and ‘carefully’ is an adverb.

Last week, we had a go writing procedures about how to make a lunch that we chose. It took the whole week! Little by little, our procedures came together, on Friday we published, and here they are! Each one is different from the others, because each student chose their own lunch to write about. I hope you enjoy reading them and why don’t you try following a procedure for your next lunch?


Aren’t these procedures fantastic?

Thanks for reading our blog! Please leave a comment below and Mrs Phillips will approve it so everyone can see it.

Episode 6 of ACGN is here!

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!
