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!

1E’s Procedural Texts

Hi Everyone,

Thank-you for coming back to our blog. 🙂

Over the past few weeks 1E and the other year 1 classes have been learning about procedural texts. We have looked into the different features of a procedural text such as: a title, goal, equipment/ what you need/ materials and the steps/instructions. We have also learnt about verbs and adverbs and how they are used very differently in procedural texts compared to other texts.

Last week was our chance to get creative and write our own procedural texts on a lunch that we like to make. We started off on Monday taking pictures of ourselves completing each step while we were making our lunches. Tuesday, we started writing the title, goal and list of ingredients and equipment. On Thursday we wrote the steps that we took to make our lunch and used the pictures from Monday to prompt our thinking. On Friday we then published our writing on Picollage.

Here are some of our procedural texts that we created. 🙂


Thank-you for reading our post.

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!
